Swindon Town chairman Lee Power says the club will attempt to sign Liverpool goalkeeper Lawrence Vigouroux on a permanent basis during the January transfer window.

Vigouroux, 22, joined the League One side on a season-long loan in August. He caught the headlines in September when he opted to pay a £50 ($72) fine entirely in pennies, a move that saw Swindon terminate his loan. An apology saw him rejoin, however, and since that incident the shotstopper's progress has continued to win over the club hierarchy.

"There has been a change there and there has been a change here with us, but we really like Lawrence," Power was quoted as saying by FlicWiltshire of Vigouroux, who has represented Chile at youth level.

"He is a bit of a wildcard and he is one of those. We discussed internally that you could sell Lawrence one day for a fortune. He reminds me a little bit of Bruce Grobbelaar and you don't know what you are going to get with him.

"It might not be great sometimes but other times he takes your breath away with things that he does, but he is someone who we have spoken to Liverpool before about. They said they wouldn't sell, but we are going to try and have another crack at him in the window. We are trying to crowbar the door open at the moment as we speak."

Vigouroux, who was formerly on the books of Tottenham Hotspur before he moved to Merseyside in 2014, is set to remain at the County Ground until the end of the season as part of his current deal. However, changing circumstances at Anfield could see him stay there permanently.

Liverpool this week recalled another young goalkeeper ahead of Vigouroux in Danny Ward, whose impressive spell at Aberdeen was cut short by Jurgen Klopp.
