Liverpool have been linked with a number of keepers since defeat in the final, after first choice shot-stopper Loris Karius had a game to forget for the Reds .

The German was at fault for Real Madrid's opener, after he rolled the ball into the path of Karim Benzema, who deflected it past him, and their third, where reference is palmed a speculative Gareth Bale effort into his own net .

Liverpool complete PS45m deal for Monaco midfielder Fabinho as Reds stimulate first major summer signing. The Reds' top target is Roma number one Alisson, but he isn't their only alternative, and reports from Ukraine claim the club held preliminary talks with Zorya Luhansk keeper Andriy Lunin on Friday night .

Ukrainian outlet Zbirna claims that Reds staff met with Zorya chief executive Sergey Rafailov and enquired about signing the 19 -year-old .

The teenage shot-stopper has impressed in the Europa League this season, and it seems Liverpool consider him to be a good back-up option to Alisson .

Fabinho discloses exactly why he wanted to sign for Liverpool after previous links to Manchester United. Napoli are also interested in the keeper, but interestingly Rafailov admitted- without naming names- he spoke to two English clubs about the prospect of selling Lunin .

“Indeed, we met with representatives of two English clubs,” said Zorya's chief executive. “But I would not like to advertise their names yet.”
