Liverpool's back-up goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi has revealed the club are in the market for an experienced shot-stopper this summer.
The Hungarian youngster, who has spent spells with Hereford in Tranmere in the past two seasons, is planning to leave Anfield for another loan stint this term.
But the 21-year-old has revealed that the Anfield outfit are likely to bring in a new face to provide additional cover for established No.1 Pepe Reina, with Brad Jones also on their books.
Gulacsi told Nemzeti Sport: "I had already been thinking about my possible departure in March although that time it wasn't a topic that Brad Friedel or Doni may sign for Liverpool.
"Of course it doesn't mean that I want my contract to be terminated because the team rely on me. When my agents and I indicated to the club officials that I would like to move to another club on loan they agreed with us and thought the same.
"The club said they rely on me for a long period and it made me very proud. But they added if I go then a seasoned goalkeeper may arrive at the club, which is understandable.
"The best way for me to improve is to play regularly. I don't know where I will play but talks are going well. I have offers from England and also from outside of England. I hope within 10 days or two weeks it will be a fact where I will continue my career - on loan."
Gulacsi knows he will have his work cut out replaced Reina in the first XI, but is proud to have been named on the bench a number of times under new boss Kenny Dalglish.
He added: "I had a fruitful time at Tranmere last year, I played 16 games. Then I went back to Liverpool in December and I sat on the bench on 19 Premier League games and on four Europa League games.
"It was a great honour and a fine experience. It sounds good to be the second goalkeeper of Liverpool but in this case I don't play. Pepe Reina is another level, I have to improve a lot if I want to be as good as him.
"At the moment it is not going to happen that the Liverpool line-up has my name in and it would be a mistake to wait for Reina's red card or injury. I want to play."
