Liverpool's goalkeeping problems have been thrust into the spotlight once more.
Jurgen Klopp dropped the much-maligned Simon Mignolet for Sunday's 4-3 win over Manchester City and played Loris Karius instead.
But the young Liverpool keeper did little to endear himself to fans and probably didn't justify Klopp's faith in him by being culpable for at least one of City's three goals.
With that in mind, the Reds could really do with a top-class goalkeeper in the near future to solve this obvious area of weakness.
And some fans of the Anfield club want to see Klopp make a move for Roma keeper Alisson, valued at around £44 million according to Gazzetta dello Sport.

Alisson Becker. Great keeper and fits the Liverpool acquisition criteria of buying for a modest fee, buying young, & building for the future— Andy Herrera (@liuderis) January 16, 2018
I would love Alisson at Liverpool— ㅤㅤㅤً (@AdxmLFC) January 15, 2018

I Prefer To Mignolet If We Don't Get Any New Goalkeeper.
I Would Like Roma Goalkeeper Alisson Becker
We won’t get him. Although I’d still be really happy with Alisson from Roma— James #JFT96 (@TikkaMohSalah) January 15, 2018
The Brazil stopper is not out of contract in the Italian capital until 2021, hence the lavish £44 million asking price by Roma, but it remains to be seen if he moves this month.
He has started 19 of the Giallorossi's 20 Serie A games this season, which suggests he's a very important player and the club's hierarchy would only have 15 days in which to sign a top-quality replacement.
If Liverpool do wind up signing him, it seems a lot more plausible that it would happen in the summer.
