The Reds undoubtedly have one of the scariest front-lines in European football, but they continue to be plagued by weak defensive displays that have subsequently prevented them from making a sustained challenge for the Premier League title.
Jürgen Klopp will certainly have to bolster his defensive ranks in the summer, with the addition of a world-class goalkeeper surely topping his list of priorities.
Roma's number one Alisson is reportedly one of the German's key targets, with a £62 million switch to Anfield being mooted, according to the Daily Mail, and if Liverpool do manage to sign the Brazilian, it could turn out to be a really significant piece of business for the Merseyside outfit.
Standing at 6ft 3in, the 25-year-old cuts an imposing physique, and he has demonstrated his exceptional shot-stopping on a consistent basis in Serie A this season.
Alisson has conceded 25 goals in 30 appearances for Roma this term, without making any errors that have seriously cost his side, very much in contrast to Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet.
The manner in which he commands his penalty area is a quality that would undoubtedly help improve Liverpool as a defensive unit, and although £62 million for a goalkeeper sounds like a lot of money, in the current market, it actually represents good value.
It would also not be an exaggeration to say that by signing the Roma ace, the Merseyside outfit would be serious contenders for both the Premier League title and the Champions League next season.
