Liverpool are reportedly close to completing the signing of Adam Bogdan from Bolton Wanderers, making him their third signing of the summer.
According to the Liverpool Echo, the deal could be finalised in the next 24 hours as Brendan Rodgers looks to bring in the Hungarian as a backup for first choice 'keeper Simon Mignolet.
Bogdan is out of contract with the Lancashire club at the end of June and revealed earlier in the month that his future will be decided soon, while making it clear that he will be leaving the Championship club.
"I am confident that soon will decide my fate. My goal is to play at a higher level, but it also depends on where you get a chance," Bogdan said.
"We'll see, everything is decided in the next week or two," the Hungarian stopper added.
Currently, the Belgian international is the only senior goalkeeper on the Merseyside club's books after they released Australian Brad Jones following the expiry of his contract. The Northern Irishman is keen to bring in an able deputy, who can challenge Mignolet to make sure he does not drop his performances.
The 27-year-old 'keeper had a difficult season at the Macron Stadium due to the loss of form and injury, but impressed the Reds boss during their clash in the FA Cup quarter finals at Anfield in March, and this has prompted Rodgers to make a move for the stopper.
Bogdan's arrival will make him the Reds' third free transfer of the season, following the arrivals of James Milner and Danny Ings from Manchester City and Burnley respectively. However, Liverpool are still negotiating a compensation fee for the striker with the Clarets.
Meanwhile, according to the Daily Mail, Bolton have reportedly moved to capture a replacement for the out of contract 'keeper by signing Ben Amos, who was released by Manchester United on 10 June.
