Loris has also been linked with a move away from Liverpool, though no official talks have been held and as yet the German remains at Anfield.

"The club will announce Alisson's permanent number in due course, and that of fellow summer signing Fabinho, who has provisionally been wearing no.3 in pre-season".

LIVERPOOL goalkeeper Alisson Becker is set to make his debut in Saturday's friendly against Napoli.

Lallana was in English World Cup squad but was never used at all but hopes to get playtime in a new looking Liverpool.

Loris Karius now occupies the No. 1 squad number at Liverpool, while Simon Mignolet, who could leave Anfield this summer, wears No. 22.

Likewise, Trent Alexander-Arnold, who Klopp has allowed to return to training a week earlier than expected. "We should not waste time", Klopp told Liverpool's website.

Last season, while each of the three main strikers scored more than 20 goals each - and Salah was the Premier League's leading marksmen - no other Liverpool player other than the departed Philippe Coutinho, notched more than six across competitions.

"I'm very pleased [to be able to work with him], but first of all it's very important he can start now because the season starts in one-and-a-half weeks". Each player in the world needs training and time to adapt to his mates.

Liverpool face West Ham United in their first league fixture on August 12. "A game in midweek but in the summer holidays should be an opportunity, against a really good opponent - it's a really important game for us, it's not "some game" - to show up with our supporters".

"It's good to have him here, he looks in good shape", Klopp said as Firmino joined training in France.
