Mignolet is now operating as a back-up to Brazilian No.1 and recent Copa America victor Alisson Becker following the South American's arrival from Roma in 2018.

A spell at Belgian side Gent last season did not work out, with Arroyo failing to start a single game after joining in August.

But Klopp says: "I think he will stay, yes".

"We spoke before we left (for summer break)". [From what] I've heard [he will stay].

The ECHO are reporting that Lonergan will not sign a contract with the club meaning he will be on a pay-as-you-play deal with the clear intention that he will leave the set up sometime after the USA tour.

Alisson Becker is on vacation after winning the Copa America with Brazil so Simon Mignolet taking hold of the gloves in pre-season. "Everything is fine from my point of view".

The Kosi River, which flows into the eastern Indian state of Bihar, was among those that had risen above the flood level. Those who do attempt escape carry bundles of belongings on their heads as they wade through chest-deep water.

However, Klopp has moved to dispel those rumours and insists he wants to keep the former Sunderland man in his ranks for 2019-20.

Keeping Mignolet is the ideal scenario for Liverpool if he wants to stay.

If Mignolet were permitted to leave then it would create a significant headache for Klopp to secure an adequate replacement which is why it is no surprise that the German is desperate to retain the status quo at Anfield. For his part, Mignolet may look to have a separate conversation in the upcoming weeks should any bids be forthcoming.

Captain Jordan Henderson will be in the squad having returned to training at Melwood on Saturday, alongside Virgil van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Gini Wijnaldum and Andy Robertson.

An injury to Paul Glatzel forced Atherton to play against Tranmere as an outfield star, but it's likely he'll return to his natural position as the European champions face the likes of Borussia Dortmund and Sporting CP in the US. Liverpool will play their fixtures in Indiana, Boston and NY.
