ALISSON IS IN line to make his Liverpool bow against Napoli at the Aviva Stadium.

The Brazil international became the world’s most expensive goalkeeper last week when he moved from Roma in a deal that could rise to £65million.

Having been given time off following the World Cup, Alisson has missed Liverpool’s tour of the United States and will not meet up with his new team-mates until the end of the month — when they take part in a four-day training camp in Evian, France.

On Saturday, 4 August, the Reds then face Carlo Ancelotti’s Napoli in Dublin and the 25-year-old could be in line to make his debut for the club in front of Irish fans.

Fellow new arrival Xherdan Shaqiri will fly out to America for International Champions Cup duty, however.

“Shaqiri will come the day after tomorrow directly to New Jersey and Alisson will come with Roberto Firmino and will be a part of the second camp in Evian,” Jurgen Klopp told Liverpool’s official website.

That’s good that we’ll have them all together, apart from the semi-finalists of the World Cup.”

Liverpool begin their International Champions Cup campaign against Klopp’s old club Borussia Dortmund in Charlotte on Sunday, before facing Premier League champions Manchester City (26 July) and Manchester United (28 July).

They kick off the Premier League at home to West Ham on Sunday, 12 August.
