When Jurgen Klopp shopped for an A-grade shot-stopper between the sticks for the Reds, the prospect of that happening was very slim.
The Reds were heavily linked with a move to sign then Roma goalie and Brazil international Alisson Becker.
But Klopp was keen on keeping Loris Karius, despite his blunders in the 2017-18 Champions League final against Real Madrid, at Kiev.
This sparked social media rage as fans called for Karius to be sidelined and urged that Liverpool chase after Alisson Becker.
Chelsea reportedly rivalled Liverpool for Becker, before the Reds stunned the English media, fans and the World, scooping up the player. Liverpool splashed a whopping 65 million pounds for Alisson.
Karius is off on loan, leaving only Simon Mignolet and first choice Alisson.
But Klopp has stirred another stiff competition between his shot-stoppers.
The manager has added youngster Kai McKenzie-Lyle to spread his options. Liverpool have confirmed the addition of the youngster after his impressive show-off during trials with the Reds coaching staff.
The Guyana international took to social media outlet Instagram, thanking the club and Tentalent for “getting it done”
McKenzie-Lyle said: ” Happy to start my new challenge @liverpoolfc big thanks to @tentalent forr getting it done #YNWA.”
The 6ft 7in shot-stopper joined Liverpool from Barnet who were relegated to the National League (the fifth-tier of English football).
