Liverpool goal keeper Loris Karius played the biggest game of his career at the weekend and flopped big time. His two blunders in the final of the Champions League helped Real Madrid lift the trophy.
The Reds need to improve the depth of their squad by signing quality players in the summer transfer window to prepare for next season and Klopp must lure a consistent shot stopper to solve the goal keeping conundrum once and for all.
The Merseysiders have been linked with Roma star Alisson for quite some time and the Brazilian international is once again in the focus after Karius’ horrible display in the CL final.

According to The Guardian, Liverpool target new goal keepers and Klopp is keen on signing Alisson from the Giallorossi. It is mentioned that Liverpool have extensively scouted the Samba star throughout the season and he is Klopp’s favored choice.
Liverpool signed Mohamed Salah from Roma last year and the Egyptian playmaker has been absolutely sensational for the Reds.
As per The Guardian, Liverpool signed the former Chelsea attacker for just £36.9m and Roma would likely demand a huge fee for Alisson.
Earlier this month, renowned Italian source La Gazzetta Dello Sport reported that the Selecao player is rated at €70million by the Serie A side. The 25-year-old goalie featured in 49 games in all competitions for Roma in the recently concluded campaign and kept 22 clean sheets.
According to Mirror Sport, Liverpool also have Atletico Madrid star Jan Oblak on their shortlist.
