Liverpool signed the 25-year-old Brazil worldwide from AS Roma, smashing the world record for a goalkeeper in a deal worth up to €72.5 million (RM341.9 million).

But it remains =a provisional, unconfirmed squad number for the Brazil global.

Out of all the top six teams, Liverpool have arguably enjoyed the best summer.

Klopp is understood to be impressed by the alertness and sharpness Alisson displayed in his first training session and the keeper has also left an impression on his team-mates after pulling off a terrific save to deny Marko Grujic a goal.

The obvious example of this is Trent Alexander-Arnold, who was given the opportunity to cement his place in the German's starting XI last season at just 19 years of age.

It's going to be interesting to see how things progress over the coming days as it would be a big risk for Arsenal to let Ramsey head in to the new season without signing an extension.
