New signing Marcelo Pitaluga is already impressing coaching staff at Liverpool.

The Liverpool Echo says with Alisson Becker sidelined, the goalkeeping situation has become one of intrigue for Liverpool.

Adrian remains the next in line, and was put through his paces alongside Caoimhin Kelleher, who was on the bench at Villa Park.

And while the Reds won’t strengthen their options between the sticks ahead of Friday’s deadline, there was one new boy on show at Melwood.

Pitaluga, the 17-year-old Brazilian snapped up last week from Fluminese, joined in the regular first-team goalkeeping group and drew plaudits from the coaching staff with one fine stop.
