Liverpool sign Alisson from Roma in record deal for a goalkeeper

Share

British media reported that Liverpool have agreed a deal worth 75mn euros ($86.88mn) for the 25-year-old, which would be a world record fee, eclipsing the 53mn euros paid by Juventus to Parma for Gianluigi Buffon in 2001.

In the Serie A last season, Alisson put up some terrific numbers finishing first in save percentage (79.3) and second in clean sheets (17) among regularly starting goalkeepers.

"The difference in the Premier League is that it's very competitive physically so I'll try to improve in that aspect as well and adapt as soon as possible to the style of play".

Liverpool FC has completed the signing of goalkeeper Alisson Becker from AS Roma. (This includes five Premier League players).

Roma are not in any rush to replace Alisson following his move to Liverpool, sporting director Monchi has said.

The importance of Liverpool signing Alisson made his mega-money fee inconsequential, according to Jurgen Klopp.

"I'm really happy to have the opportunity to play alongside him again".

Former Liverpool goalkeeper Chris Kirkland hopes that Alisson Becker is the last piece of the jigsaw that sees the Reds emerge as Premier League title contenders.

"We have everything we need for next season, because I don't think we will do anything more (in the market)".

"When you start hearing rumours about Real Madrid, Chelsea and Liverpool you can either pretend that nothing's going on and plough on as normal, or you can accept that something could happen and work to find the best solution for the club".

"When you make an important decision like this it's not just a decision to change clubs, it practically changes your entire life, my family's life, my wife, my daughter". I want to have them desperately but the season is really long.
