Liverpool invite goalkeeper to training camp as Jurgen Klopp eyes summer deal

Liverpool are weighing up a move for Spanish goalkeeper Javi Cendon after inviting the youngster to their training camp in Austria.

Cendon, 19, is without a club after leaving Villarreal at the end of last season and was called to the Reds' base to work under goalkeeping coach John Achterberg and assistant goalkeeping coach Jack Robinson.

He has been training alongside first-choice shot-stopper Alisson and back-up options Adrian, Caoimhin Kelleher and Loris Karius.

Cendon will return to Liverpool's Melwood complex to continue training with the first team before manager Jurgen Klopp makes a decision on his future, while the Liverpool Echo reports he has impressed thus far.

Cendon has featured for Spain at a youth level and reached the final of the Dallas Cup – an annual competition for youth teams – with Villarreal U19 last year.

He was also part of the team which beat Atletico Madrid 3-0 to win the Spanish Youth Cup last year, in Villarreal's first triumph in the competition.

Meanwhile, Liverpool have been preparing for the coming campaign and ran out winners in their first pre-season friendly match on Saturday, beating Bundesliga side Stuttgart 3-0.

Should Adrian keep his status as Alisson's back-up in the coming season? Have your say here.
