Liverpool Alisson: Reds could have signed keeper for £4m

Liverpool won three of their four matches against Manchester City last season, including both legs of their Champions League quarter-final, but finished 25 points behind them in the league. "We need to be ready for that. I..."

And he said when asked about the physicality of the Premier League: "I don't think that physical aspect is going to have a negative effect on me at all". First of all, we need to make sure that he can play his best football and then he will come in the situation to score and he's there he'll probably score again that's how it is if it's 40, 20, 30.

For starters, Liverpool have been playing under Klopp since October 2015 which should be enough time to adapt to the style of football which Klopp expects of them.

The German goalkeeper, whose form has disintegrated during pre-season, has been rattled by the world record signing of Alisson Becker and is aware he will be given hardly any opportunities to play next season.

"I don't want to make him the most physically strongest player in the squad or whatever".

But Liverpool made a decision to pass on the move and Alisson eventually signed with Serie A club Roma in February 2016 for just £6.7m. Was Virgil van Dijk worth £75m?

"All Liverpool fans hope they can put some pressure onto City".

Liverpool coach Juergen Klopp and Mohamed Salah are seen during training. But I always did my best.

"The World Cup I can imagine was a challenge for him as well, not only from the sports side", Klopp said. "He has got everything".

Klopp has been impressed by Daniel Sturridge's pre-season and is prepared to give the striker another chance.

Danny Ings and Divock Origi are the two players expected to attract the largest fees, with six others also not in Klopp's plans this season and the sales could add up to £100m.

And Klopp has admitted his squad will likely be trimmed before the transfer window shuts on August 9.

The Daily Express says that Croatian defender Domagoj Vida is close to agreeing terms, but the Liverpool Echo disputes that claim by saying the Reds "will not sign Vida this summer - or any other centre-back". Rangers were linked with a move for the player on a loan basis earlier this summer, as reported by The Sun. "We need to be ready for that", Klopp told reporters in NY, where Liverpool were continuing their pre-season tour.
