Liverpool transfer news: Jurgen Klopp could still let TWO stars depart Anfield | Football | Sport


Klopp has been busy in the transfer window, signing Alisson, Fabinho and Xherdan Shaqiri while Naby Keita also arrived following a deal last summer.

Alisson is the arguable marquee Liverpool signing with the goalkeeper costing £65million to buy him from Roma.

It’s expected that the Brazilian will now become Klopp’s No 1 following a number of mistakes from Loris Karius.

And the Telegraph now report that Klopp could offload both Karius and fellow goalkeeper Simon Mignolet before the transfer window closes on August 9.

It would leave the Reds light on experienced shot-stoppers though rookies Kamil Grabara and Caoimhin Kelleher have reportedly impressed Klopp during pre-season.

Besiktas and Barcelona have both been linked to Mignolet with the Belgian having started last season as Liverpool’s keeper.

He was dropped in favour of Karius but the German made two huge errors to gift Real Madrid the Champions League final in May.

Bayer Leverkusen are on the hunt for a new goalie following the departure of Bernd Leno to Arsenal and Karius is rumoured to be of interest to the Bundesliga side.

But Klopp recently admitted he would have signed Alisson even if Karius and Mignolet were on top form.

“If we had won the final and Alisson had been on the market we would have gone for him because we think he is the goalkeeper we want,” Klopp said.

“The other goalkeepers are really good, like our midfielders. It doesn’t mean we tell Fabinho: ‘Sorry, we already have good players we don’t need you’.

“We bring in another one because we think we can make the next step like with Naby [Keita]. We do it and it’s the job.”
