Jurgen Klopp admits that he was wrong about rival star Paul Pogba

Origi, a son to former Harambee Stars global skipper Mike Okoth, had a disappointing campaign last season that was punctuated with a loan spell at German side VfL Wolfsburg.

Serbian winger Lazar Marković is still a Liverpool player, despite spending the past three years out on loan, and is available for £7m.

His team produces exciting, dynamic and fast flowing football that results in plenty of goals and entertainment, yet this has often been undermined by defensive frailties.

Other Liverpool players linked with moves away include Sheyi Ojo, Pedro Chirivella, Loris Karius, Simon Mignolet and Ben Woodburn.

The need for a goalkeeper was ruthlessly highlighted in the Champions League final in May.

Probed on whether anybody at Liverpool gave him advance warning of Alisson's signing, Karius replied: "Nobody spoke to me beforehand".

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says his team's "next step" is to win trophies but he "cannot give guarantees".

The 25-year-old's arrival now means that Karius' run as Liverpool's first-choice goalkeeper is at an end.

Jurgen Klopp's side were the Premier League's second-highest goalscorers in 2017-18 on 84, but they conceded 38 - 11 more than title winners Manchester City - and Di Canio recalled similar patterns from the Reds during his own playing days.

"First and foremost, my responsibility is for this club to be as successful as possible, and it's not about pushing through my thoughts on that and saying: "no, I don't want to buy players, and I don't want to pay big money" and stuff like that", Klopp said. Supporters are certainly hoping imagine so.

"Yes, Alisson is world class". It's a strong statement of intent and Reds fans are buzzing. "We need to be ready for that", Klopp told reporters in NY, where Liverpool were continuing their pre-season tour. During their most successful period Chelsea had Petr Cech in his prime.

Origi is set to leave Anfield this summer after being told that he is behind Roberto Firmino, Daniel Sturridge, Dominic Solanke and Rhian Brewster in the pecking order. Alisson is the final missing piece.

Manchester City winger Leroy Sane is expecting Liverpool to be a hard opponent in the upcoming season after an impressive transfer window so far.
