Will they never get a dependable man between the posts? Will they never become the league champions again? If you can’t guess, whom I am talking about, then i must inform you that, Arsenal has Petr Cech, then who got left? There is no debate about Liverpool desperately needs a quality goal keeper as their last guard. Goalkeeper has been a serious problem for the Anfield army which has gone pathetic for last few years. Though the German coach has appointed Loris Karius in place of Mignolet in the starting eleven, but it seems mistakes and sloppiness have promised never to leave from their goalkeepers.

Karius had joined for £4.7m back in 2016 and is not effective enough. This 24-year-old has struggled to compete in the commanding zone in the box. The direct and physical football of Premier League outpass him everytime into the net. The Reds definitely needs a goalkeeper who can stand strong in the box and also can take shots from distance.

The lack of a standout performance from the bars caused fatal blow to the sides. 31 goals conceded yet, the second highest among the division’s top six.

 

The leaky defense along with the under performed goal saving skills undermined the most devastating attacking line up of England. Mané-Firmino-Salah need to score in bunch to overcome the mistakes at the back.

 

Klopp already spent big money in his back five. £75m to sign the Dutch pillar Van Dijk from Southampton was the initial footsteps which may end into signing a quality goalkeeper.

 

According to the sources, Liverpool is targeting the AS Roma goalkeeper Alisson Becker, who may have given a release clause of €90m (£80.1m) as part of any new deal. An Italian football paper quoted recently, “Alisson is asking for €5 million (£4.4 million) per season including bonuses, a significant upgrade on his current €1.5m (£1.3m) per season.”

 

This Latin American star has been outstanding throughout the season, and it was expected that he will make noise in the summer window. Roma though desperately wants to retain him at Italian capital, but doesn’t money speak last?

Top flights of world football has shown interests on this Roma candidate like PSG, Real Madrid and Liverpool.

Forget about PSG and Real Madrid, they have oceans of notes, but Liverpool isn’t far away. The millions earned in the transfer of Philippe Coutinho may now be used to pursue another Brazilian in the squad.

 

Roma goalkeeping coach Roberto Negrisolo recently quoted, “Is Alisson worth €50m (£45m)? Don’t be silly, he’s worth far more than that. I don’t think many people have realised who Alisson is. This guy is a phenomenon. He is the number one of number ones.”

“He is the Messi of goalkeepers, because he has the same mentality as Messi. He is a goalkeeper who can mark an era.”

“There is absolutely no comparison with Gianluigi Donnarumma, because Alisson is extraordinary. The way he behaves in the goal, he reminds me of Dino Zoff. I’d also compare him to Michel Preud’homme, who had the class of someone born to be a goalkeeper.”
