And he claims Karius, following his mistakes in the Champions League final, can not be relied upon, even as a backup to Alisson.

Since Mignolet joined from Sunderland in 2013, goalkeeper has been a problematic position for the Reds and it's culminated in a move for Alisson, who was arguably the best goalkeeper in Serie A last season.

With a potential €75 million transfer nearing completion, Liverpool fans are now in a state of high tension over the prospect of their club signing goalkeeper Alisson Becker from Roma. Indeed, his save success rate (80.1%) was better than any other shotstopper in Italy's top tier last term as he provided a solid last line of defence. With that being said, Liverpool is doing some exciting things, and people have taken notice.

Alisson made 49 club appearances in all competitions last season as Roma reached the Champions League semi-finals, before losing out to Liverpool.

Alisson spoke in the video, saying: "Greetings to Roma fans".




Liverpool fans will be delighted to hear about Henderson's eagerness to return to Anfield.

Liverpool's goalkeeping woes finally seem to be coming to an end.

The fact that Liverpool went back for him after a failed inquiry in January showed the interest was genuine and the Brazilian is seen as the missing piece of the jigsaw.
