Liverpool Complete Record £65m Signing of Alisson.


The Merseyside club have completed the signing of Brazilian Goalkeeper, Alisson after a sum £65million (€73m/$85m) was enough for the switch from Roma and a further £9m could be paid in add-ons, which are dependant on Champions League qualification as well as Premier League and European wins.

Alisson Becker is the Reds’ fourth signing this season after the likes of Naby Keita, Fabinho and Xherdan Shaqiri were signed.

Liverpool identified the 25-year-old as their preferred choice to be the club’s No.1 last season, and worked hard this summer to thrash out a deal with Roma, who were reluctant to lose one of their star men to the Reds for the second year in a row.

The Italians’ initial asking price of £90m, quoted to Liverpool back in January, was seen as excessive but it was made clear in the past month that the Serie A club would settle for a deal closer to £75m, and that the player was keen on a move to Merseyside.
