The winner of the Golden Glove for the 2016/17 Premier League season, Courtois has been one of the most dependable goalkeepers in the English top-flight. He is immensely skilled and at 26 years of age, the Belgian also boasts of ample experience.
It remains to be seen if Chelsea are willing to sell him to a direct rival but if that is the case, it would not hurt us to make a move.
We are quite short of quality content in the goalkeeping department since both Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet have failed to live up to expectations. In such a situation, a move for Courtois seems like a good idea even though the authenticity of the news is doubtful.
Nevertheless, our fanbase on Twitter shared their opinions about this potential deal and here are some of the best reactions:
There is no way Chelsea are gonna sell there star keeper to us, there is no way in hell!

Liverpool should bid for Courtois, see if Chelsea will sell if he’s not signing a new deal

Genuinely the most ridiculous thing i’ve read. His wife and child still live in Madrid and Chelsea wouldn’t sell him to us for anything

#Courtois to #Liverpool rumours are very strange. Sure he'd be an upgrade but he's not at all good with the ball at his feet. I haven't heard anything, but for that reason I can't rule it out. #CFC #LFC

Courtois won’t be going to Liverpool. But I hope him leaving Chelsea starts some goalkeeper merry-go-round that Liverpool become part of.

I'd happily take Thibault Courtois to Liverpool.

Surely Liverpool HAVE to go in for Courtois now???
