NEW BOY: Goalkeeper Alisson at Liverpool squad training in France

Alisson has trained with his new Liverpool team-mates for the first time.

The Reds shelled out a world-record fee for a goalkeeper in capturing the Brazil international from Roma for £65million earlier in July.

He has now joined Jurgen Klopp's men at their training base in France following a post-World Cup break.

Alisson said on liverpoolfc.com: "It has been a great day which I had been looking forward to.

"I've had a good few resting days with my family but we all couldn't wait to get the new season under way soon. It's only my first day and I feel at home already."

Alisson's Brazil team-mate Roberto Firmino also reported back for training, and the pair could play a part in Liverpool's pre-season friendly against Napoli at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday.
