"As good as Alisson was in his first season in Rome, Courtois we have seen over a longer period".

Karius, who followed up his nightmare display in the Champions League final against Real Madrid with a series of errors in pre-season this summer, has now admitted that his future is up in the air following Alisson's arrival.

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.

Mignolet, Jordan Henderson and Dejan Lovren will return to training at the beginning of next week, giving Klopp a full squad for the first time this summer.

Brazilian duo Roberto Firmino and new record signing Alisson Becker joined the rest of the squad in France where Liverpool players endured an intense training camp and are poised to feature at some point with the latter confirmed by Jurgen Klopp.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is considering starting Xherdan Shaqiri against West Ham next weekend after his impressive performances in pre-season, according to the Liverpool Echo, cited by the Daily Express.

Alisson started training with Liverpool earlier this week following a break after Brazil's World Cup campaign.

"We should not waste time".

Last season, while each of the three main strikers scored more than 20 goals each - and Salah was the Premier League's leading marksmen - no other Liverpool player other than the departed Philippe Coutinho, notched more than six across competitions.

Liverpool's final pre-season friendly will also be against a Serie A side, Torino, on August 7. "The signs are really good for us to go the next step".
