Liverpool fans want Alisson signed by Jurgen Klopp this month

Manager Jurgen Klopp speaks to the media during the Liverpool FC Press Conference at Anfield on August 22, 2017 in Liverpool, England.

Liverpool fans want Alisson to solve their goalkeeping problems.

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.

Gazzetta reported Liverpool's interest earlier this month and suggested that the 25-year-old 'likes' either Liverpool or Paris Saint-Germain.

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.
