Wantaway Liverpool Striker Under Pressure To Make Major Transfer Decision

"It's pretty likely (he'll make his debut)".

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is considering starting Xherdan Shaqiri against West Ham next weekend after his impressive performances in pre-season, according to the Liverpool Echo, cited by the Daily Express.

"I don't think anybody's squad is stronger, including Liverpool's, than Manchester City's".

Liverpool are now training in south-eastern France ahead of their final pre-season friendlies and are expected to return to Melwood next week before the opening day of the Premier League.

Liverpool are allegedly considering a late bid for Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey, who has less than a year remaining on his contract.

New Liverpool #1 Alisson Becker, who broke the all time transfer fee record (£67 million) for a goalkeeper when he moved to Anfield from AS Roma in July, will play his first minutes with his new club on Saturday. He has used that time to have a strong pre-season for the Reds, and is keen to help them bounce back from their Champions League final disappointment after sitting out much of 2017/18 with injury.

'Training for the outfield players is obviously different than for the goalies, but we want to see him as well against Napoli. "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".

"As good as Alisson was in his first season in Rome, Courtois we have seen over a longer period".

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.

"But in critical situations, I felt tracking back and what we needed for the team in a relegation battle just wasn't there".
