Anfield-Bound: 'Incredible' star confirms LFC transfer may 'happen in the future'

Liverpool are currently linked with a move for Club Brugge goalkeeper Matthew Ryan, and it appears that the 22-year old 'stopper is open to signing for the Reds.

According to The Telegraph this week:

"Brendan Rodgers and the Anfield transfer committee are closely monitoring Ryan [and] a potential summer move is under discussion".

When asked last night about Liverpool's interest, Ryan told reporters:

“It’s nice to be associated with a club like that [Liverpool], and if it’s meant to be then it will happen in the future. If I continue to work hard and not worry about that sort of thing now then it will sort itself out”

Brugge’s former sporting director, Arnar Gretarsson, is convinced that Ryan's days in the Belgian league are numbered, and in a recent interview, he noted:

"I don’t see him staying for much longer at Club Brugge. I know he would like to go to the Premier League. He definitely has the quality to play in the big three leagues."

Ryan is in great form at the moment, and after keeping a clean sheet in a recent Europa League, the Torino boss Giampiero Ventura hailed the 'keeper's performance. He raved:

“He [Ryan] produced at least three or four truly extraordinary saves. I have to compliment him [Ryan], some of those saves were incredible"

Ryan's stats:

Central Coast Mariners

* 99 goals conceded in 94 apps (1 every 1.05 games)
* 36 clean sheets (38% of games)

Brugge

* 69 goals conceded in 78 apps (1 every 1.1 games)
* 32 clean sheets (41% of games)

* TOTALS: 168 goals conceded in 172 apps (1 every 1.0 games)
* 68 clean sheets (40% of games)

Ryan's basic stats are far superior to Mignolet, who (overall) concedes 1.4 goals per game.

The Reds are linked with a whole host of goalkeepers at the moment, but is Ryan - voted Belgium 'Goalkeeper of the year' last season - a better option than the likes of Cech, Neto, and Perin?

  1. You cannot judge a keeper on goals conceded otherwise Hugo Lloris would be worse than Mignolet...

  3. Cech was not suited at high line under AVB at chelsea so how will he suit here ? Plus no more Chelsea rejects we are better then that
    Perin might be great but we have no luck with Italians Borini,Aqualani,Dossena etc
    Neto is not that good


    I never seen Ryan play apart from the game vs Holland which he conceded 3 so i do not know .


    But all 4 are not what we need .


    Neur,Courtois,De Gea , Hart one of them will be a good signing.

  4. What is Man citys stance on Joe Hart ? last year they did not want him


    I think he will be perfect signing i see him as captain material as well

  5. Too much ink spent on a new keeper. Yesterday the back three were great, the pressure on AV was strong and we scored goals. Migs made one brilliant save. Yesterday was the recipe for success...not a new keeper.

  6. Does anyone think we'll actually sign anyone during this transfer window? Personally, I don't think we'll get anyone. I don't think we are seriously in negotiation with anyone either, the guys we are linked with ie Higuain, Lavezzi, Icardi etc I think they are using us to get real bidders out in the open.

  7. I think Ibe coming back is a sign we won't.

    ReplyDelete
  8. we got ojo circling around the squad too

    ReplyDelete
  9. any one of those four would be a great signing ....but realistically do you honestly think any one of them would leave to come to us right now?.....also I'd take any chelski "rejects" (how many of thier rejects have we got?) if they turned out like

    Sturridge....

  10. If we're planning on replacing Jones with this guy them fair enough but I don't think he's ready to be our no1 yet however he may prove me wrong

    ReplyDelete
  11. Arjen Robben is a Chelsea reject...

    ReplyDelete
  12. He left for Real madrid the biggest club in world
    is Cristiano Ronaldo a Man utd reject or Luis Suarez a lfc reject

    ReplyDelete
  13. ah we definitely need another keeper, Migs needs competition and Brad Jones' days here are numbered which leaves us with the inexperienced Ward, as for ryans height he is only half an inch shorter than barthez and what a great keeper he was...not all great keepers are real tall

    ReplyDelete
  14. Paul Pogba. Suso in the future.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Cech is not leaving now that Schwazer has left for Leicester. Arsenal are now in for Perin and Ryan is far superior to Neto for a similar price.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Ryan isn't a great keeper.

  17. Freaking City. A home win wouldn't have been too much to ask. Giroud header from s set piece and not a CB in sight.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Exactly. You've answered your own question reaffirming your earlier comment about Chelsea rejects not making sense

    ReplyDelete
  19. well to tell you the truth pandle I dont know much about him seen a little bit of him on tv,and reading about him and of course the video above, which makes him look very good ..reminds me of Pepe Reina when he was at his best....but videos can make any player look good cant they. ..

    ReplyDelete
  20. Yeah city to be honest looked quite poor. Based on this performance it looks like chelseas title to lose...

    ReplyDelete
  21. Really sheikh. If Hart was not English he would of gotten a lot more stick ... It was his mistake last week that lead to Everton scoring ... Thanks but no thanks we got enough problems with over hyped British players in our squad..

    ReplyDelete
  22. I would love to think Mig will suddenly turn out to be a good goalie but he is no youngster and the evidence to date suggests otherwise,


    It may be harsh I thought he was just OK yesterday and I thought the save was good but not brilliant.

    ReplyDelete
  23. jayzus.... we win and everyone around us wins, thought we might gain a couple of places this weekend....

    ReplyDelete
  24. My. Thoughts exactly ...

    ReplyDelete
  25. Our next 5 PL games are gonna be really tough

    ReplyDelete
  26. lost on a couple of crosses also ...again.....but seemed to be trying to get involved in trying to organize the defence etc which is good to see

    ReplyDelete
  27. When I said he added colour I think I must have meant he makes me see red and go purple with rage. He browns me off makes my mood black and gives me the blues.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I've not seen one of Mig that makes him look good ;-/

    ReplyDelete
  29. It's make or break for us. Next 5 premier league games are :
    West ham home
    Everton away
    Tottenham home
    Southampton away
    Man city home
    Plus we got cup games against Chelsea and besikas to deal with ...

  30. If Mignolet plays as he did against Villa, we won't be needing a new keepe. I think the Villa game will be a turning point in his season.

  31. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=c1Emol3m-mk
    Luks like a Superb GK...i would love to replace him with mignolet asap

    ReplyDelete
  32. no problem....I have every confidence in the squad ... sort of....kinda...ish....maybe......yeah real confident

    ReplyDelete
  33. We're heading into them on a good run, at least the lads should be full of confidence.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I don't think Cech will leave in January and Arsenal will get him in the summer.

    We will probably wait till the summer for a new keeper. We have the basis of a good squad now and only need to add 1 or 2 big players each window. I would love Lacazette in January and then a new keeper and top midfielder in the summer

  35. Being an Aussie i do like Ryan and although not tall would make a fine second keeper being only 22 can only get better.
    But he is still a bit of a cowboy and is prone to errors in England especially from crosses where he isnt fully tested in Belgium.
    The boys distribution is way better than Mignolet and commands the box well but if we are to get a better stopper to be number 1 then they should look elsewhere.
    Also i would argue that Liverpool need a new keeping coach Achterbergs reign as coach has only seen keepers such as Reina and Mignolet regress.

    ReplyDelete
  36. He definitely turns my blue sky grey

    ReplyDelete
  37. As a second keeper he is a level above Jones and is a lot younger.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Perhaps the goalie search should be expanded. BTW, the idea of a better defensive coach may need to be extended to goalie coach.......I just want us to think as a top flight club mentality not five steps above Villa and Crystal Palace

    ReplyDelete
  39. He is not ready to be number 1 but if we were to get rid of Migs and Jones would be an able second keeper.
