11:45 UPDATE: Liverpool may sign Alisson replacement
Liverpool will consider signing a new goalkeeper on a short-term contract with Alisson set to miss six weeks of action with a calf injury.
Alisson went down late in the first half of Liverpool’s clash with Norwich on Friday evening in the Reds’ opening game of the season.
Liverpool went on to win the game 4-1 but will be fearing the worst after Alisson appeared to grimace while clutching his calf area in the 39th minute.
After the game, Jurgen Klopp confirmed that Alisson would miss next week’s Super Cup final with Chelsea before describing that the Brazilian felt like he was hit by something.
Second keeper Adrian came on to replace Allison, just days after the Spaniard signed for the club.
But the Liverpool Echo are reporting that the Reds may seek a short-term deal for a new keeper because Klopp doesn’t have many options in the position.
Liverpool will have to sign a free agent due to the transfer window closing on Thursday.
