Former Liverpool defender Danny Murphy believes Loris Karius may have played his final game in the Reds shirt after his Champions League final showing against Real Madrid. The German footballer was guilty of making two calamitous errors during the match and this eventually cost the Reds, who lost the final by a 3-1 scoreline.
Since the incident, Liverpool have been strongly linked with a number of shot-stoppers with Roma’s Alisson Becker leading their shortlist. The Brazil international has been tipped to join the Reds for the past few months but there appears to be a stumbling block in terms of the transfer package involved for the keeper.
As per reports, Roma are said to demand at least £60m for the Brazilian and this is considered steep for the Merseyside outfit, who have planned to strengthen other areas of the field. Aside from a goalkeeper, the club are also looking to recruit another attacker into their ranks and this could seep through part of their budget after having already spent £43m on Monaco’s Fabinho. The ex-Real Madrid loanee was announced as the club’s first summer signing shortly after the Champions League final.
