Ochoa to Liverpool?

Mexican goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa is being heavily pursued by Liverpool and are reportedly ready to sign him this summer.

Ochoa, who has been a revelation in this edition of World Cup with tremendous saves, has attracted attention from all around Europe. He was earlier linked to Barcelona but they seem to have withdrawn their bid with the Catalan giants opting for Chilean keeper Claudio Bravo who will compete with German Marc-Andre Ter Stegan.

Napoli have reportedly decided to keep Pepe Reina for another season. Earlier, Napoli were planning to offload Pepe Reina but Rafa Benitez has reportedly offered him to stay for another year.

Ochoa is a free agent now after his contract with French club Ajaccio expired just before the World Cup began. He will provide stiff competition to Simon Mignolet who is Liverpool's current keeper.

Mexico were eliminated from the World Cup following their 2-1 defeat to the Netherlands.
