The Liverpool fans in the Tavern this afternoon are absolutely loving what Roberto Firmino has been getting up to in his training sessions with the Brazilian national team. The 27-goal striker has been pictured shaking hands with Roma ‘keeper, Allison, who has been touted as Liverpool’s next number one at Anfield.

Whilst there’s no guarantees that the flashy Reds striker is trying to convince his Champions League semi-final opponent to join him on Merseyside, the Kopites propping our bar up are loving that the two have been pictured together whilst on international duty. Allison has had an amazing season with Roma, helping I Giallorossi to a Champions League semi-final and a 3rd place Serie A finish, leading a number of top clubs to pursue his signature.
The 25-year-old could be on his way to a number of clubs this summer, although with Roberto Firmino in the shot-stopper’s ear whilst he competes in Russia, plus the signing of fellow Brazilian Fabinho a couple of days ago, the Roma man could be tempted to make a Premier League switch. Our resident Reds’ are all in agreement that they need a new ‘keeper, and it seems they’ve narrowed their choices down to Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak and Allison, it just remains to be seen who Klopp goes for in the coming months.
