Alisson transfer stance, Lijnders’ new job & Salah ‘rift’ – Latest Liverpool FC News

There is a positive update over the future of Alisson at Liverpool to enjoy on Wednesday, as well as news of a new job for Pep Lijnders.


Alisson “very happy” at Liverpool

Alisson has been the subject of interest from the Saudi Pro League ahead of the summer transfer window, but a positive update has now emerged.

According to This Is Anfield‘s David Lynch, the 31-year-old is “very happy” at Anfield currently and will not be pushing for a departure this summer.

This is a massive boost for anyone of a Liverpool persuasion, with the thought of losing him at this point in his career an unbearable one.

His last-gasp save to deny Moussa Diaby at Aston Villa on Monday was proof of his brilliance and he should remain one of the world’s best goalkeepers for years to come.
