Liverpool fans on Twitter keen to promote youth if Karius and Mignolet depart

A lot of Liverpool fans on Twitter have been discussing who they should bring in as their new number two to Alisson becker if they are to sell both Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius, although a lot of fans are of the idea that they shouldn’t sign anyone and they should promote one of their young shot-stoppers.

Alisson’s signing signals a serious message for Liverpool. The Reds have looked soft at the back for a long time, despite having one of the most devastating attacking forces in the world. However, after paying the record transfer fee for a defender when they signed Virgil van Dijk in January and having now paid the record fee for a goalkeeper in Alisson, Jurgen Klopp is keen to put those accusations of being soft behind the club.

The issue now arises of who should be the club’s number two. Most Liverpool fans are of the belief that they’ll be shipping off both Mignolet and Karius, a move which plenty of Liverpool fans would be delighted with. Normally, having such a young number two would be concerning, but after seeing the way the likes of Kamil Grabara played in the International Champions Cup, it would be no shock if he was to be promoted.

As you can see, the Reds are all keen to promote the youth and don’t see the need to sign a number two shot-stopper.
