When Jurgen Klopp’s on the other end of the phone, players usually end up at Liverpool.
The German’s first permanent arrival was actually Marko Grujic – convinced after Liverpool’s manager rang the youngster up in Serbia and explained his vision.
And almost three years later, the boss still has the knack of selling his Red Revolution to those he believes could help it.
Fabrizio Romano of Sky Italy confirmed on Twitter that the boss has already been talking to Alisson, the goalkeeper Liverpool are expected to sign imminently.
and Alisson also had a call with Klopp… 😄

If we get a deal for the Brazilian over the line, he’ll join Naby Keita, Fabinho and Xherdan Shaqiri as summer recruits.
Then, Klopp will be targeting a playmaker (a replacement for Coutinho, who left in January), and we’ll have a squad that looks potentially capable of greatness.
2018/19 is going to be an incredible opportunity for us if our best players stay fit and we get the rub of the green.
It’s time silverware came back to Anfield.
