Loris Karius to continue as Liverpool’s No.1 by Dave Filmer Published

Heavy transfer speculation is mounting over Reds' goalkeepers Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet as Reds' may make a big decision over their futures. Alisson Becker becomes Merseysiders' latest addition whom they made World's most expensive player at his position.

Alisson will be Jurgen Klopp's new No.1 after signing for £67m from Roma - a record transfer fee for a goalkeeper - but he is keen not to disrespect Karius and take his shirt number too.

Liverpool have already cashed in on former third choice 'keeper Danny Ward, who has completed a £12 million move to Leicester City, and according to the Telegraph, Karius and Mignolet could follow him out of the exit door.

The Brazil worldwide had always been linked with a move to Anfield before the deal was confirmed on July 19, with neither Simon Mignolet nor Loris Karius convincing last term - the latter at fault for two goals in the 3-1 Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid.

Karius was picked ahead of Simon Mignolet after impressive displays last season but his Liverpool career took a turn for the worse after two costly and high-profile mistakes in the Reds' 3-1 Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid.

"I can not say what I'm doing right now, there's still some time left".

Jurgen Klopp is thought to have been impressed by rookie keepers Kamil Grabara and Caoimhin Kelleher during the club's pre-season tour of the United States of America, and they could prove to be Alisson's backup.
