Liverpool’s goalkeeping situation seems to have taken a twist, and the majority of supporters are not entirely happy about it.
The Liverpool Echo reports that the club are unlikely to move for Roma shot-stopper Alisson in the summer transfer window.
The 25-year-old has been one of the names touted in the media as a possible target for the Merseyside outfit, but the publication states that the situation has changed.
According to the report, manager Jurgen Klopp is happy with Loris Karius’s recent performances since taking over as number one from Simon Mignolet.
In addition, Roma are reportedly demanding £70m for Alisson, and given that the Serie A outfit wish they had asked for more money from Liverpool for Mohamed Salah last year, negotiations could be a problem.
Many Liverpool supporters are keen for the club to bring in a new world-class keeper in order to compete for titles, so this latest development has not been met with much joy.
Why are we the only Top-6 club trying to get by with a budget keeper. Karius has improved but is nowhere near the standard we require/deserve

Wait till the end of the season and then make a decision. Yes, Karius has improved but we need a top top keeper.

Are our standards so low that now we are calling 3 or 4 saves a resurgence!? The kid isn't very good, sign a top keeper or continue to concede crap goals and win nothing, really is that simple.

Here we go again! Pulling back! Karius is not world class

Karius has improved…. that is not saying a right lot. I'd sooner have my dead dog in the nets than any of our current keepers.
