Following Loris Karius' horror show in the Champions League final, Jurgen Klopp decided he needed to bring in a new face to be his number one, so he splashed out £67 million on Roma's Brazilian first-choice Alisson Becker.
That deal broke the pound sterling record for a goalkeeper set by Manchester City in 2017, when they recruited Ederson Moraes from Benfica for £35 million.
But on Wednesday the record was shattered again, as Chelsea acted fast to acquire Athletic Bilbao's Kepa Arrizabalaga for a fee of £71 million, following Thibaut Courtois' departure to Real Madrid.
There's been a big debate following that particular deal being sealed over who will ultimately end up being the more successful capture.
And GiveMeSport conducted a poll to decide which shot-stopper the general football supporters would rather sign for their club given the chance.
The results were pretty much a landslide success for Alisson.
Out of the 31,100-person vote, a large 74 per cent decided they'd rather have the 25-year-old Brazilian guarding the goal, compared to the 26 per cent that favoured the Blues' new record transfer.
With World Cup and Champions League experience under his belt, Alisson could be seen as the better goalkeeper for now, and comes with a huge reputation.
He's already shown in Liverpool's pre-season friendly against Napoli that he has fantastic vision for a goalkeeper and brings more to the team than his abilities in the 18-yard box.
Kepa however is more of an unknown quantity on the big stage, only playing once for Spain and never in European competition, but arrives in England with a huge reputation in his home nation, and could very well be the successor to David De Gea.
We will only know who's made the better deal once we are well into the 2018/19 Premier League season, but if there's one thing fans can agree on, it's that both have a lot to do to prove that they're worth the substantial fees that have been paid for them.
