Liverpool star tells Arne Slot he wants to leave the club this summer

A Liverpool star has told the club he wants to leave for a Premier League rival, it has been claimed.

Slot is readying to take his first pre-season as Liverpool boss, having inherited the role from the enigmatic, long-serving Jurgen Klopp.

Indeed, the Dutchman has big boots to fill, with Klopp having won almost every trophy available in his nine-year spell at Anfield, including the Champions League in 2019 and the club’s first Premier League in 30 years the following season.

And among his first jobs will be to appease the wishes of Reds shot-stopper Caoimhin Kelleher, should reports that he is keen to join a Premier League club this summer be believed.

Football Insider has claimed Kelleher is planning to push for a move away from Anfield, with the 25-year-old keen to become the number-one shot-stopper elsewhere.

Celtic are said to be interested in the Ireland international upon the retirement of Joe Hart, however, the publication has claimed the Parkhead club will find it hard to meet Liverpool’s valuation of Kelleher.

And Football Insider has added that Kelleher is prioritising a move within the Premier League after impressing during his opportunities at Liverpool.

The shot-stopper made 26 appearances in all competitions for Liverpool in the 2023-24 campaign, including ten games in the Premier League upon Allison Becker’s injury.

Kelleher kept five clean sheets and conceded 32 goals in those outings.

The Cork-born star joined Liverpool from Ringmahon in 2015 and has risen through the youth ranks to be the backup to Alisson. He is under contract at Anfield until June 2026.
