Alisson included as Liverpool confirm 29-man squad for training camp in France

30 July 2018

Liverpool travel to France on Monday afternoon and Jurgen Klopp has chosen 29 players to take part in the five-day training camp.


Having spent the past couple of weeks in USA for a three-match tour, the Reds are now set to hit the final stretch of their pre-season work.

While the youngsters, returned-from-loan players and non-internationals took part in the first batch of friendlies against north-west opponents, the US tour saw World Cup players gradually return.

Now in France Klopp will be working with even more seniors and a brand new face, as goalkeeper Alisson joins up with the squad for the first time.

The Brazilian is one of four goalkeepers named, with Loris Karius travelling, but Simon Mignolet is still on his post-World Cup break.

Fellow South American Roberto Firmino will also join up with the squad, while Trent Alexander-Arnold is also in after returning early from his holiday.

Notably, Joel Matip is included after missing the final part of the US tour through injury, while Danny Ings is also included having not travelled Stateside.

However, Lazar Markovic is not part of the travelling squad, despite playing a part over in America.

Youngsters Ben Woodburn and Pedro Chirivella are also left out amid speculation they could be off to Aston Villa and Rosenborg respectively, along with Sheyi Ojo, who is wanted by Middlesbrough.

Nat Phillips, Rafa Camacho and Curtis Jones remain involved after each impressing with the seniors this pre-season.

The Reds will have five days in France before flying to Dublin, where they will face Napoli at the Aviva Stadium in their penultimate pre-season friendly.
