Alisson out for several weeks, Lonergan may get a contract offer

Alisson Becker limped off the pitch in the 38th minute of Liverpool’s Premier League opener, a 4-1 win over Norwich City at Anfield, to be replaced by Adrian who had come in on a free transfer a week earlier.

The initial assessment of his condition is that he would be out for 3-6 weeks due to a grade 2 calf tear.

Meanwhile, with Adrian poised to step into the fray, Simon Mignolet gone, Kamil Grabara out on loan and Caoimhin Kelleher still recovering from a broken wrist, the club are considering giving Andy Lonergan a short-term contract to help bridge the gap, according to Connor Dunn of Liverpool Echo.

The 35-year-old free agent, who is already at Melwood, helped the Reds out during their pre-season tour in the USA, putting in a decent 45-minute performance against Sevilla.
