Liverpool will intensity their efforts to sign a new goalkeeper in aim of ensuring elite talent is pervasive throughout the entirety of their starting eleven.
Jurgen Klopp is expected to revitalise his search for a new no.1 following Loris Karius’ two costly errors in Saturday’s Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid.
The 24-year-old was solely at fault for the champions’ first and third goals, denying the Reds of their realistic chance of beating Zinedine Zidane’s men.
Whilst Klopp will undoubtedly be sure to handle Karius’ situation with the required sensitivity, the Liverpool boss will also be keen to settle transfer business as early as possible.
Liverpool will draw up a fresh move for Roma’s Alisson having previously diffused their interest in him, according to the Telegraph’s Chris Bascombe.
Alisson has made a lasting impression in his first full-season as starter in Serie A, earning a spot as Brazil’s first-choice ahead of Manchester City’s Ederson as a result.
His physical presence, evidently sharp reflexes and composure with the ball at his feet entail a potential to thrive in the Premier League and behind a vastly-improved Liverpool defence.
Karius had been undergoing a lengthy audition for his role in 2018/2019 over the concluding stages of the season, enjoying his best run of form since signing for the club in the process.
With his chances of retaining his spot between the sticks now looking slim, Liverpool appear more prepared than ever to part with the large funds required to address a priority position.
