Jürgen Klopp has admitted that he is open to holding talks for the sale of both Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet.
Over the last few seasons, Liverpool fans have been crying out for a top class goalkeeper and a top class defensive midfielder. In both Alisson and Fabinho, two Brazilians, the Reds have a new-found solidity at the back.
Alongside the two new signings, Virgil van Dijk and an in-form Dejan Lovren will combine to decrease the number of goals scored in the Premier League.
For Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet, however, Alisson’s arrival almost certainly spells the end of their careers at Anfield and both have been reported as keen on finding moves elsewhere this summer.
“We had the opportunity to bring in one of the best goalkeepers in the world,” Klopp told Sky Sports News.
“Karius and Mignolet are both outstanding goalkeepers but we have outstanding midfielders and strikers and defenders but we still brought in [players] anyway to help us make the next step.
“That is the world of football. Of course, can Loris be happy or Simon be 100 percent happy about the situation? I don’t think so. How can people be happy like that? But it is part of life.
“If someone comes we are always open for talks as we have shown in the past but there is nothing decided for the moment.
“From my point of view – purely as the head coach of the team – to have these three goalkeepers and the two young boys, that makes me feel really good. But, it’s part of the business that some people will leave the club, so we will see what happens.”
