Liverpool, Newcastle alerted to availability of veteran goalkeeper Ike Casillas

Liverpool target Real Madrid legend to solve problem position Iker Casillas signed for Porto from Real Madrid in 2015

FC Porto goalkeeper Iker Casillas has been targeted by Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp as he looks to settle his goalkeeping problems at Anfield, according to a report on the Express.

Liverpool have always been criticized for their poor defensive shape and not just one, but a bucket load of pundits have advised Jurgen Klopp to revise his defensive solidity.

Simon Mignolet has started all but one of Liverpool's Premier League matches this season with Loris Karius appearing in all of the Champions League fixtures.

Casillas is under contract to Porto until next summer.

Casillas took to Instagram to register his obvious disappointment after being dropped for last week's Champions League game against RB Leipzig.

While the Reds might have failed to sign better defenders, there seem to be an opportunity to make an upgrade in the goalkeeping department as it has been revealed that Porto are making legendry goalkeeper Iker Casillas available for sale in the January transfer window. Considered as the greatest goalkeepers of all time, Casillas move to Porto back in 2015 after falling down the pecking order at Real Madrid.

Casillas himself did not pick up an award, but was among the players celebrating Porto's impressive start to the season. Should the Spaniard is bought, either Karius or Mignolet will be forced to find a new club given that both are vying for the first team spot.

Klopp will most definitely address his defensive weaknesses in the January transfer window and starting with an experienced goalkeeper would be ideal.
