Liverpool sign goalkeeper Alisson for world-record fee

But Klopp said on Thursday evening that Liverpool are unlikely to sign any more players following Alisson's arrival from Roma.

Roma and Liverpool are "at a very advanced stage" in finalizing the transfer of Brazil worldwide goalkeeper Alisson for a reported $87 million world record fee for a goalkeeper, according to the Italian club's sporting director Monchi.

The deal, of course, is a world record fee for a goalkeeper, eclipsing the €53m paid by Juventus for Gianluigi Buffon way back in 2001 and the £35m paid by Manchester City for Alisson's compatriot Ederson last summer.

Alisson Becker has his heart set on a move to Liverpool FC ahead of Chelsea FC this summer, according to reports in the British media.

Alisson had a strong season with Italian side AS Roma and played a vital role in their run to the Champions League semi finals.

Liverpool have already signed Fabinho, Xherdan Shaqiri and Naby Keita this summer.

The Premier League star has been exceptional during Russian Federation 2018 for his nation and it looks like he may finally get his move to the La Liga.

Liverpool are reportedly set to sign Roma goalkeeper Alisson.

But in Alisson, Liverpool have found a goalkeeper who is both reliable and agile, has great reflexes and remarkable footwork and, in the past, has proven to be a great leader with worldwide experience.

Chelsea were also rumoured to be interested in the 25-year-old shot-stopper as they worry over the future of Thibaut Courtois, but Jurgen Klopp moved faster on the deal.

Roma teammate Diego Perotti told Sky Sport Italia that he was sorry to see Alisson leave: "He was a really important goalkeeper for us and his saves rescued a lot of points and games last season, but that is football", he said. "They were quite excited, so we did it".

"I think it's something we have to do", he added.
