Liverpool consider free transfer after news of Alisson injury

Liverpool could sign veteran goalkeeper Andy Lonergan on a free transfer with news that Alisson could be out for six weeks with a calf injury, according to reports.

Alisson went down late in the first half of Liverpool’s 4-1 win over Norwich on Friday night, with Jurgen Klopp left fearing the worst after the Brazilian appeared to grimace while clutching his calf area in the 39th minute.

After the game, Klopp confirmed that Alisson would miss next week’s Super Cup final with Chelsea before describing that the Brazilian felt like he was hit by something.

“It’s the calf and that’s it, Klopp said. “He couldn’t carry on, that’s not a good sign, and we have to see. Wednesday he will not play. With all my experience I can say that already.”

Second-choice stopper Adrian came on to replace Alisson, just days after arriving the club – having been released by West Ham during the summer.

However, the Liverpool Echo are reporting that the Reds may seek a short-term deal for a new keeper because Klopp does not have many options in the position.

Liverpool will have to sign a free agent due to the transfer window closing on Thursday, with Lonergan an option after featuring for the club in pre-season.

The 35-year-old is still training at Melwood, despite being released by the club, and could provide the short-term cover that Klopp needs.
