Why Liverpool FC haven’t made Alisson bid revealed – report
Liverpool FC manager Jurgen Klopp is set to place his faith in Wales international Danny Ward this season, according to David Maddock
Liverpool FC haven’t made an offer for AS Roma goalkeeper Alisson Becker this summer as Jurgen Klopp is prepared to give Danny Ward a chance to shine as number one, according to Daily Mirror reporter David Maddock.
The Reds have been relentlessly linked with a move to sign Alisson over the past few months following Loris Karius’ horror show in the Champions League final in Kiev at the end of the 2017-18 season.
Karius made two big mistakes to allow Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale to score in Real Madrid’s 3-1 win over Liverpool FC after the Reds had managed to put the 13-time winners on the back foot.
Liverpool FC were thought to be interested in a potential swoop to sign the Brazil international in the summer transfer window to finally tackle their long-standing problem in goal.
The Reds haven’t had a truly world class goalkeeper since Pepe Reina before Klopp’s predecessor Brendan Rodgers opted to allow the Spain international to leave the Merseyside outfit.
However, Liverpool FC are set to give Wales international Ward a chance to stake a claim as their first-choice goalkeeper.
Daily Mirror reporter Maddock cites Klopp’s faith in Ward as one reason why the Reds haven’t made an official bid to sign Alisson.
Maddock wrote on Twitter: “The reason there’s been no LFC bid for Alisson, or even contact over him or any other keeper: Klopp impressed by maturity of Danny Ward, believes he’s shown outstanding form on pre-season return – which will win him extended chance to become no1. #LFC”
