The imminent departure of Caoimhin Kelleher at Liverpool will free up a spot for a new goalkeeper signing, and Brazilian wonderkid Luiz Turatto is at the top of the Anfield outfit's transfer wish list. Turatto currently plays for Juventude's under-20 side and has suggested as Brazil's future number 1.

Long-serving goalkeeper Alisson is widely expected to finish his career at Anfield, and the club's head goalkeeping coach Claudio Taffarel, also a former Brazil international, has been closely monitoring the progress of Turatto. An agile and excellent shot stopper, Turatto has caught the eye for his youth club's under-20 team.

It is understood that Liverpool will bid around £8 million to lure the youngster to the Premier League.

Last season the keeper spent the campaign on loan at Fluminese and impressed during that short spell.

Liverpool have recently appointed Arne Slot as new manager, and the Dutchman has been given a budget of around £100 million to spend on new faces. Former Feyenoord boss Slot is keen to bring in at least seven new signings.
