Summer agenda

Liverpool have to sell a raft of fringe players before the start of the season.

Harry Wilson and Marko Grujic are unlikely to stay after a sequence of loan moves.

Whilst Nat Phillips and Neco Williams are thought to be pushing for first team football.

Xherdan Shaqiri and Divock Origi have failed to provide effective cover in recent seasons and so will likely be sold.

Meanwhile, Jürgen Klopp needs a striker and a midfielder to strengthen the side.

The Reds have benefited greatly from having the Holy Goalie in the net, he’s been vital to our success since his arrival.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Liverpool are close to agreeing a new contract for Alisson, the journalist told the Here We Go Podcast:

“So Alisson is getting closer to signing a new contract with Liverpool.

“It will take some weeks, maybe months because of course with the timing for these kinds of things

“But Alisson is getting really, really close to signing a contract with Liverpool.”

What RTK has to say

Liverpool nailing Alisson down to a long term contract is vital.

He’s not even at his peak yet and he’s already the best goalkeeper in the world.

Keeping him well into his 30s will secure our net for the years to come.

Furthermore, he’ll be a vital tutor for Marcelo Pitaluga.
