Former Anfield favourite Graeme Souness believes Liverpool must sign a new goalkeeper in this summer window.

From the look of things and the reports fielding in, it seems that the new goalkeeper is AS Roma goalkeeper Alison Becker.

Souness told beIN Sports quoted in FourFourTwo that the moment is a difficult time for Jurgen Klopp as he would want to be kind to Karius but would want to ensure mistakes doesn’t happen again.

“The manager is in a difficult position. He’ll want to be loyal, he’ll want to be seen to be doing the right thing by Karius, but if you get to another big game and he lets you down again then people would be critical of the manager.

“I think he has to go and get another goalkeeper.

“People make mistakes, that’s part and parcel of any professional sport. But to make two on such a big stage, I think that means it’s going to be difficult for Karius to remain as the number one at Liverpool.

“He might need to be a number two again and he might come back that way. But to put him in as the number one, to carry that burden is a lot of pressure on himself. Then you have to wonder the level of confidence the players around him would have.”

Liverpool already spent some cash on the transfer market to secure Switzerland winger Xherdan Shaqiri who arrived last week to join midfield duo Naby Keita and Fabinho.
