Pressure is on to win trophies, says Jürgen Klopp

Pressure is on to win trophies, says Jürgen Klopp

Liverpool completed a £65 million deal to sign Alisson from Roma last week, making him the most expensive goalkeeper in history.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says his team's "next step" is to win trophies but he "cannot give guarantees". Most people, whether they root for Barcelona, River Plate, Notts County or anyone in between, understand this.

"I can't see it", he said when asked about Liverpool potentially going for Dembele.

Naby Keita finally arrived on Merseyside after a deal was agreed a year ago, Fabinho was brought in under the radar and Xherdan Shaqiri was signed as much-needed back-up to the club's front three.

Klopp has indicated that Alisson will be first choice for this coming season, while Karius' case to do so wasn't exactly helped by an error-strewn performance in a 3-1 preseason defeat against Klopp's former team Borussia Dortmund in the United States last Sunday.

Liverpool lost the League Cup and Europa League finals in Klopp's first season in charge, while they were beaten by Real Madrid in last season's Champions League final.

The France global, who featured as his country stunned the likes of Uruguay, Argentina and Croatia to win the World Cup in Russian Federation, struggled for the Catalan giants last season.

He also spoke out about his disappointment about the Alisson signing so a move could be best for all parties.

Coats says he was not criticizing Trump for inviting Putin to visit
It remains to be seen if Trump will take questions this week, or if press secretary Sarah Sanders will hold daily briefings. The Washington Post reported that Trump specifically admired how Putin is "strong, smart, and cunning".

Arsenal also have an interest in the 21-year-old.

In this transfer window, Jurgen Klopp has transformed Liverpool into a force to reckon.

Karius says he was not told by Klopp about the plan to sign Alisson. I'm surprised how good he is actually, if I'm honest.

Striker Danny Ings, who was left behind on Merseyside to do extra work on his fitness after an ankle problem, seems one of those players likely to be on his way after three frustrating, injury-plagued seasons at Anfield.

The Guinea midfielder was signed from RB Leipzig and has featured prominently in the Reds' pre-season.

"I am confident we can build on last season", he added. Better players than we already have are not waiting around the corner.

"But for that to happen we need a strong squad around him and Loris is an outstanding goalkeeper".
