Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker will make his debut in Saturday’s friendly against Napoli, manager Jurgen Klopp has confirmed.
Liverpool signed the 25-year-old Brazil international from Roma last month, smashing the world record for a goalkeeper in a deal worth £67m.
Alisson started training with Liverpool earlier this week following a break after Brazil’s World Cup campaign.
Klopp told Liverpool’s website: “It’s pretty likely (he’ll make his debut). We should not waste time.
“Then it’ll be nearly a week, or six days in training, since he (started) and yes, he will play.”
Liverpool play their final pre-season friendly against Italians Torino on August 7, five days before hosting West Ham United in their Premier League opener, live on Sky Sports.
