Liverpool fans have a solution for their goalkeeping dilemma if Alisson joins them

Just like Arsenal, Liverpool are soon going to have a goalkeeping dilemma.

A £66m fee has reportedly been agreed between the Reds and AS Roma for Alisson, who is keen to link up with Jurgen Klopp having spoken to him over the phone.

Liverpool have now been given permission to speak to the Brazil international and they're so confident of finalising a move that they've started organising a medical.

Kopites will only hope this transfer doesn't go pear-shaped like it did with Nabil Fekir before the World Cup.

One big question remains if Liverpool do sign Alisson, though: what will happen to Loris Karius, Simon Mignolet and Danny Ward?

Having four goalkeepers is completely unnecessary, so Klopp has a couple of big decisions to make.

At the absolute minimum the German needs to sell one of them. Ward has been tipped for the No.1 spot recently so with Alisson set to arrive, it's likely he'll drop down to No.2.


And then there's Karius and Mignolet, who have both showed during their time at Liverpool that they're far too error-prone to start week in week out.

So what do Liverpool fans make of the situation? How do they think Klopp should deal with having four goalkeepers at his disposal?

In reaction to Alisson's seemingly imminent move, Kopites have come up with a pretty great idea that seems to suit all parties.

And it is: make Alisson No.1, have Ward as his back-up, sell Mignolet and send Karius, who is only 25 years old, out on loan.


Karius has been through hell over the past couple of months and even though he's made some woeful mistakes, there's a belief that he has the potential to be very good.

A loan move makes sense, then, because it would give the German the chance to reinvent himself away from Liverpool and then return in the future as a more experienced goalkeeper.

As for Mignolet, the 30-year-old has been on Merseyside five years and the simple fact of the matter is he's just not good enough. It's time to say goodbye.

Here's a small collection of tweets from Liverpool fans explaining how Klopp should resolve the impending goalkeeping situation.
