Alisson arrives from Roma where he faced the Reds in the Champions League semi-final last season.
The money Liverpool have spent both this summer and in acquiring Virgil van Dijk last January has been sizeable, but the snipes from Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho suggesting Klopp has joined the big spenders league have been laughable.
The former Reds defender told Sky Sports: "Everyone's talking about Liverpool and with good reason".
"You saw it with Van Dijk and now with Alisson - the market value has really gone up high".
"We will see what happens", he started.
"The goalkeeping situation has given everybody a massive lift".
Liverpool supporters largely blamed May's Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid on Karius' errors, and the German goalkeeper also struggled in preseason friendlies this summer against Tranmere Rovers and Borussia Dortmund.
It is a shame Ings didn't reach the heights he displayed at Burnley during his time at Anfield, nevertheless this is a move that needed to happen this summer.
"I have heard people say that they are one or two players short of a title-winning team but I don't agree with that - there have been a couple of seasons over the past three or four years when they have been serious contenders but have been one short, and it was a keeper they needed".
"Simon Mignolet and Karius are good goalkeepers but not great goalkeepers".
"They have signed Alisson now and they really needed to strengthen and they've got that done".
Liverpool would score on two occasions moments later.
Even though the Liverpool side that will begin their latest attempt to win a first English top flight title since 1990 against West Ham at Anfield can not be compared to the iconic teams in the club's past right now, I have rarely felt more confident in what lies ahead as a new season beckons for a Reds squad oozing with talent and depth.
