Alisson injury details confirmed as Liverpool consider offering free agent a deal

Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker looks set to sit on the sidelines for up to six weeks, following an injury he picked up in the Reds’ Premier League opener against Norwich.

Fears are that he’s torn his calf muscle and will now sit out for at least a month – the Brazilian may even miss Liverpool’s first Champions League group stage game in September.

That’s according to renowned Daily Mail reporter Dom King who is usually up to scratch on the Merseyside clubs.

Initial fears for Alisson Becker is that he will be out for 4-6 weeks. Indications that he has torn his calf. If lay-off is to longer end of the scale, he could miss first Champions League group game in September 🔴— Dominic King (@DominicKing_DM) August 10, 2019

This news will be far from welcome for Liverpool fans, but new-boy Adrian will perhaps relish the opportunity to prove himself worthy, starting with the Super Cup fixture against Chelsea.

The Reds have had free agent Andy Lonergan training with them throughout their pre-season tour, and he remains at Melwood with the squad.

The Liverpool Echo suggest that Jurgen Klopp may look to offer the former Preston North End stopper a short-term deal to boost the senior options in the squad.

However likely that is, it shouldn’t be considered as a shunt to young goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher as the 20-year-old is still yet to make a senior appearance for the club.

Considering how hard-fought last season was, every point will count this season and experience may be key for Liverpool.
