Alisson and Fabinho are near the top of the pecking order when it comes to players being offered new contracts this summer by Liverpool.
The Reds will be looking to get their squad in good shape for next season as they aim to reclaim the Premier League title after a tough and testing 2020/21 campaign.
Indeed, fans will be back in Anfield to cheer the side on and it looks as though the club is eager to keep a number of key players around for some time yet with several extension talks planned.
And, as per the Liverpool Echo, it’s Fabinho and Alisson that will see their situations sorted first of all, with several other names then to potentially follow:

ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT
Getting all of these players’ respective futures sorted for as long as possible will be good, especially with us seeing Gini Wijnaldum leaving on a free this summer.
Of course, every player has their day where they need to move on from the club but it needs to be at the right time and, in the meantime, the club needs to do all it can to hold onto them and prevent against the obvious threat of clubs swooping in with an offer.
New terms for all of these players makes sense.
