If there is one team that have been very impressive in the transfer market this summer, it has been Liverpool. Jurgen Klopp’s side are clearly eager to develop upon their impressive performances next season as they finished the Champions League in second place last season.
While Manchester City eased to the Premier League title last season, Klopp’s charges did cause the Citizens problems as they defeated them three times out of the four games that the two team’s played against each other. Two of these wins came in the Champions League while one came in the Premier League.
After forking out to bring in Virgil van Dijk to Anfield in January, the Reds continued their impressive business this summer as they have brought in the likes of Fabinho, Alisson Becker, Fabinho, Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri.
The Reds experienced goalkeeping uncertainty last season as both Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius failed to convince supporters that they are capable of holding down the first-choice goalkeeping position at the club on a long-term basis.
The situation was best exemplified as Karius committed two errors during the final of the Champions League in May which gifted Madrid with two goals as Los Blancos went on to win the encounter 3-1 and claim their third successive Champions League title.
Alisson arrives at Anfield as one of the most highly-rated keepers in World football and he has the ingredients and capabilities to be a success in England.
Alisson was so impressive that he has managed to keep the Brazil first-choice goalkeeping position despite facing competition from the impressive Ederson of Manchester City.
Then the Reds have also secured the services of Fabinho, Keita and Shaqiri to beef up their midfield. Both Fabinho and Keita have established themselves as two of the best midfielders in the World and were instrumental to the successes that Monaco and RB Leipzig have enjoyed respectively during recent years.
Shaqiri has for many years been highly-rated and was one of the top performers for the Stoke team which was relegated from the Premier League last term. The Swiss winger definitely has what it takes to be playing for a side which is aiming to challenge for League honors.
