Alisson: Liverpool make Brazilian world’s most expensive goalkeeper

Alisson played in all of Brazil’s matches at the World Cup in Russia

Liverpool have made Roma’s Alisson the world’s most expensive goalkeeper by signing him on a six-year deal.

The Reds have not revealed how much they have paid for the Brazil number one but Roma said the deal is worth up to £66.8m (72.5m euros).

“In terms of my life and my career, it’s a huge step for me being part of this club and this family,” said the 25-year-old.

He has been at Roma for two years, playing 37 Serie A games in 2017-18.

‘One of the world’s best goalkeepers’

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said he has signed “a real personality”.

“At one point in the last few weeks it came up, the opportunity to sign one of the world’s best goalkeepers,” he added. “The owners were quite excited, so we did it.

“He has nothing to do with the price, we have nothing to do with the price. It’s the market, that’s how it is and we will not think a lot about it.

“He needs to adapt to the English Premier League. The league is different, the refs are different, the goalkeeper’s life is different in the Premier League.
