The former teammate of Alisson's brother will now be training alongside the Reds' No.1.

  • Marcelo Pitaluga, a 17-year-old Brazilian goalkeeper, has joined Liverpool, the club's official website confirms.
  • The Reds have reportedly agreed to pay a transfer fee in the region of £1.8m from Fluminense.
  • There, Pitaluga trained at Fluminense alongside Muriel, a brother of the Reds No.1 which means the club already have plenty of information on the youngster.
