Loris Karius might have some serious competition coming his way

Loris Karius has had to fight to nail down the No. 1 spot at Liverpool.

And while Karius has performed admirably in relegating Simon Mignolet to second-choice, it looks like there’s more competition coming his way.

For months, Liverpool have been linked with a move for Roma goalkeeper Alisson Becker and we’ve finally received confirmation that the Reds are indeed interested in bringing the Brazil international to Anfield.

Ahead of Liverpool’s Champions League semi-final first leg against Roma on Tuesday night, the Serie A club’s president James Pallotta admitted that Jurgen Klopp has expressed a desire to sign their ‘keeper.

“I am not going to sell him,” Pallotta told Sky.

“Liverpool want to sign him and we are on very good terms with him.

“I am sure we will receive some huge offers this summer.

“We don’t want to sell him but the decision must also be taken by Monchi and the manager. We want to build the future of Roma around him.

“We had no choice when we sold Salah and Pjanic.

“If they had told me they wanted to stay we could have talked and find a solution but Salah wanted to prove himself in the Premier League.

“We have some issues with the Financial Fair play but we think everything will be sorted soon.”
