Klopp reveals what'll happen to Karius after Alisson's arrival

Meanwhile, Daniel Sturridge has praised the signing of midfielder Naby Keita from RB Leipzig.

In an effort to get themselves over the line, while also challenging for the Premier League title, they have invested £250m ($328m) in new talent across the last two transfer windows.

Jurgen Klopp says Daniel Sturridge can be a "decisive player" for Liverpool after impressive displays from the injury-plagued striker in pre-season matches.

"He is an outstanding player when he is fit. As long as he is ready for that, the future is bright". It is not as if he is 30-something.

"He has natural arrogance that you need on the pitch, so when something doesn't work he doesn't disappear out of the game for 10 minutes".

Last week, supporters recommended a scenario in which Simon Mignolet is sold and Karius is loaned out to regain some confidence, which would have left Danny Ward as Alisson's deputy. But which role is best suited to the Englishman?

Steven Gerrard's former club Liverpool are set to let ten players leave Anfield this summer, but Dominic Solanke isn't on the list of potential exits reported by The Daily Mail. However whoever is to stay will know their position will still be of backup personnel to the now established Liverpool forward line consisting of Salah, Firmino and Mane.

"It was a very intense pre-season so far and he was part of pretty much all the sessions". The Belgian striker spent last season on loan with Wolfsburg and is understood to have attracted interest from Valencia.

"They are certainly the favourites to lift the Premier League this season". He is a goal scorer and that's what is his main target in the games. His finishing is better still.

Meanwhile, Liverpool are without the services of Keita as a precaution due to a sore neck following their delayed journey to New Jersey from Charlotte on Tuesday.

As previously mentioned, his time at Chelsea often saw Sturridge played out on the wing to accommodate Chelsea's thunderous attacking players including Drogba, Anelka and even a young Salomon Kalou.

Clyne had bad luck with injuries last season as well. According to reports in The Telegraph and The Daily Mail, Liverpool are preparing to offload several players. In Salah and Sadio Mané he faces fierce competition to become a regular starter for Liverpool but, despite growing frustrated when placed in a similar position at Bayern and Internazionale, the new arrival is undeterred.
