Jurgen Klopp may be willing to put his faith in fellow patriot Loris Karius, but the kerfuffle following his faults in their pre-season friendly clash against Tranmere-Rovers despite scathing through by a goal margin (3-2), has forced the club’s hand.
Liverpool are desperate to land hot shot Alisson Becker, and they have upped their earlier proposed bid as well for the outstanding Brazilian.
The Reds have tabled a 58 million pounds bid for Alisson and according to Italian outlet Gazetto Dello, as quoted by the Sun, the Merseysiders could bring in the 25-year-old on a five-year deal and they plan to make it happen in the next 24 hours.
Liverpool will offer the Brazilian international £100,000-per-week as wages should he join the outfit claims Gazetto Dello.
The Reds were forced to find a world-class replacement between the woodwork after Loris Karius faulted twice in their Champions League final clash against Real Madrid in May, as they were thumped 3-1 on the night at Kiev.
A marquee player is what the fans are demanding and they made that clearly known after Loris Karius’s latest blunder against Tranmere-Rovers.
Despite Klopp insistence on ferrying this league term with the 26-year-old, the idea has not been widely welcomed.
Liverpool FC supporters are desperate to see a someone new between the sticks and Alisson is their pick.
