Newcastle are in talks to sign former Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius after Carl Darlow was injured during training on Wednesday.
Karius became a free agent after his contract with Liverpool expired in the summer.
Alisson has not played for Liverpool since joining in 2018, having spent the last two years on loan at Besiktas and Union Berlin.
The 29-year-old has already undergone a medical examination at Newcastle and has signed a short-term contract to join St James’ Park.
Darlow injury forces Newcastle into action
Newcastle were forced into action after Darlow tore ligaments in his ankle in Wednesday morning’s session.
The 31-year-old has now faced the sidelines for some time and Newcastle are short of backup goalkeepers.
With Newcastle unable to recall until January under the terms of Martin Dubravka’s loan deal to Manchester United, Eddie Howe has been forced to seek cover for Nick Pope, who he acquired this summer.
Karius’ Liverpool struggling
Karius joined Liverpool from Mainz in 2016 but fell down the pecking order at Anfield just two years later when Alisson was signed as the club’s number one goalkeeper.
The German struggled to make his mark at Liverpool, and a slump in the 2018 Champions League final loss to Real Madrid saw subsequent loan moves to Turkey and Germany practically cut short his career at the club. sacrificed to
