Karius set to be Klopp’s first choice ‘keeper for the Reds next season according to the Sun

Karius and Mingolet have both been unconvincing for the Reds this season, so the news that they have been priced out of a move for Alisson will be bad news for all involved.

The Brazilian was one of the best ‘keepers in the world last season as he helped Roma finish third in Serie A as well as reaching a Champions League semi final, where they lost out to eventual runners-up Liverpool.

Karius was at fault for two goals in the final, something that saw a whole host of fans turn on him, and we’re sure a few of them won’t be happy to here he is set to be their first choice ‘keeper for next season either!
