It could turn out to be a very exciting week for Liverpool if transfer rumours are anything to go by.
For months now, fans have been urging the club to swoop for a new goalkeeper following Loris Karius’s costly mistakes during the Champions League final in May.
The German did not ease any concerns during a pre-season friendly against Tranmere earlier this month as he spilled what should have been an easy save.
For a while it seemed that manager Jurgen Klopp was going to stick with his current options rather than recruit a new figure, but according to widespread reports a deal for Roma shot-stopper Alisson could be in the works.
According to BBC Sport, the Reds have agreed a fee of around £66.8m with the Italian outfit, which means that Alisson will be free to hold talks with the Anfield club regarding a move.
With regards to Nabil Fekir, there are no concrete suggestions that Liverpool plan to revive their bid for the Lyon playmaker, whose knee problems scuppered the initial deal.
However, some fans believe that if both players join Liverpool before the transfer deadline next month, then they will be title contenders.
Making us title favourites!

Fully fully. If we get Alisson and Fekir wrapped up in the next couple of weeks then best believe the title race will go down to the wire with City
