Jurgen Klopp explains dual importance of Liverpool’s upcoming Anfield friendly against Torino

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp may be on the hunt for a new back-up goalkeeper

Liverpool were hoping to recoup somewhere in the region of £26m for Divock Origi, who has been deemed surplus to requirements by Jurgen Klopp, but after a lack of interest from potential suitors, they have dropped that asking price.

Liverpool face Napoli on Saturday as they wind down their pre-season, with Alisson set to make his debut.

This is Liverpool's penultimate fixture in a pre-season that has offered great encouragement, most recently burying Jose Mourinho's Manchester United by four goals to one in their final fixture of the International Champions Cup.

Alisson will be tasked with improving the Liverpool FC defence following the inconsistent performances of Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet.

Asked about Firmino's availability, Klopp said: "It's good to have him here, he looks in good shape, and if possible we will see [if he can play against Napoli]".

He added that he will comment on the details of the case after getting further information on the same. A Boynton Beach man was a struck by a auto while filming a video for the so-called Keke Challenge.

After the match in Dublin, Liverpool will host a final friendly at Anfield against Torino on August 7 before getting their Premier League season underway at home against West Ham on August 12.

"Then it'll be almost a week, or six days in training, since he (started) and yes, he will play", Klopp continued. "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".

All in all, this newly assembled Reds squad was a musically gifted bunch - except for Fabinho, who was hopelessly out of tune having been nearly entirely overcome by stage fright beforehand. We will see for how long.

The Brazilian took part in his first training session for the club this week since sealing his big-money move from Roma and has immediately caught the eye of his new boss.

Naby Keita is fit again after sitting out the last two games, and Daniel Sturridge has also returned to full training.
