Liverpool move in for Cavalieri

July 4, 2008 at 17:22 2 comments

Palmeiras’ reserve keeper, Diego Cavalieri, could be on his way to Liverpool.

The Liverpool Echo has reported that the reds are ready to offer 3 million euros for the 25 year old.

Cavalieri was outstanding for Palmeiras last year when he filled in for Marcos during his many layoffs through injury.

The goalkeeper is a Palmeiras youth product but any profits will be divided between the club and Sports management group, Traffic.

Height: 1,91 m – Weight: 86 K – left-handed

    If he pushes the ball out like that in the premiership he’ll be in trouble.

    Cavalieri will certainly have to learn to keep hold of the ball more – especially from crosses were most Brazilian keepers tend to punch it away rather than pluck the ball out of the air. However, Cavalieri is a good shot stopper and i actually prefer him to the ex Brazil man, Marcos. Cavaleiri’s not the finished article but for that price Liverpool are getting a good deal.
