5 players who could join Liverpool this summer
Naby Keita will be the first player to join Liverpool this summer after it was announced in August 2017 that a deal between Liverpool and RB Leipzig had been agreed. He could be the first of many to come because Liverpool's manager Jurgen Klopp wants to boost his sqaud in order to fight for the English Premier League title next season.
Most importantly, Liverpool is prioritizing the signing of a new keeper. In the mind of Klopp, he believes that getting a goalkeeper is essential for a team which has conceded an astonishing number of goals. The Reds' attacking threat will remain prevalent as Mohamed Salah looks determined to stay with the Premier League club. After getting Virgil van Dijk in January, Liverpool will now refocus their attention to the midfield.
Here are five players who may be joining Liverpool come this summer.
#5 Alisson Becker (Roma)
The Roma keeper, who has performed well all season, and is being eyed by Jurgen Klopp. Alisson is gradually establishing himself to be one of the best shot-stoppers in the world at Roma. Meanwhile, the Reds have conceded 35 goals as of 6 April 2018, the most among the leading three clubs in Premier League standings.
That statistic is the reason why Klopp is so eager to recruit a goalkeeper in his team. The German coach seemed to have lost trust in Simon Mignolet, who could be on his way out in the summer so that Liverpool can welcome a new goalie. Alisson has been linked to the Merseyside club for a period of time and could be switching clubs this summer.
The Brazilian makes an average of 3.83 saves per goal, amounting to three times more than Simon Mignolet. This excellent record has shown that he is a reliable keeper at the back who is alert at all times, this is someone Liverpool needs.
