Liverpool’s backup goalkeeper Adrian is being linked with a move away to the La Liga side Real Betis and the fans want £30 million-plus Nabil Fekir in return.
The 33-year-old Spaniard, who joined the Anfield from West Ham in the summer, has been very useful for the Reds especially when our first choice goalkeeper Alisson was injured at the start of the season.
In his ten Premier League appearances for Liverpool, he has conceded nine goals and has kept two clean sheets, which is quite impressive given the fact that he was never a first-choice goalkeeper for us.
It was no surprise that when a report emerged in Estadio Deportivo today about his transfer, many Liverpool fans came forward to disagree with the idea.
Most of the fans touted Adrian as the best backup goalkeeper in the Premier League, while one fan went ahead to claim he was the second-best goalie in the world.
Keep him. He’s the best no 2 keeper in the PL. 👍👍👍👍

Wouldn’t want to lose him, best backup GK we’ve ever had

Why would we sell the second best keeper in the world?

Of course, if Liverpool were to sell him to Betis, many of the fans would expect a fairly decent sum from the Spanish side in return. They were discussing the figures and it’s fair to say that some were more realistic than others.
One fan demanded they send Nabil Fekir the other way on top of a decent figure as well…
£30 mil + fekir will do😉

And there were also some who can’t bear to see him leave as Adrian was labelled a legendary figure on social media.
These fans would rather keep him around no matter what the cost.
Mate he ain’t going nowhere! Legend now

They should forget about him now.. Adrian is now staying here and will retire here at anfield. He loves liv so much that he want leave even he never start a game again.

But there was one fan who believes Adrian deserves to be a first-choice goalkeeper somewhere else and the Reds should give him their blessing if he truly wants to leave.
To be fair he deserves to be a number 1 somewhere. Would love to keep him but if he wants to go he should get the clubs blessing.
