Alisson signs on with Liverpool

Liverpool complete goalkeeper Alisson Becker transfer

Liverpool have made Alisson Ramses Becker the most expensive goalkeeper of all time after signing the Brazilian worldwide for £66.8m from AS Roma.

The 25-year-old signed a long-term contract with the Reds after undergoing a medical and completing the formalities of his switch at Melwood. "He has a lot of experience in the last few years, in Europe and in Rome, he's played an outstandingly high level and he did the same at the World Cup".

Fabinho could make his competitive debut for Liverpool when they host West Ham United on the opening weekend of the Premier League season.

Liverpool forked out £67.5million to procure the goalkeeper from Roma, days after Loris Karius committed another error in the 3-2 friendly win over Tranmere Rovers.

Gianluigi Buffon has always been the most expensive goalkeeper in history after joining Juventus from Parma for 53 million euros in 2001.

The previous record was held by the Gianluigi Buffon's €53 million paid by Juventus to go to Parma. I'm an agile "keeper; despite being tall, I've got very good agility and strength in my legs", Alisson said.

Jurgen Klopp is thrilled to have signed a "world-class goalkeeper" in the shape of Brazil global Alisson. "They were quite excited, so we did it", said Klopp. 'We met again in the game when we were up against each other [in the Champions League last season].

"I've seen other games where I could see the way Jurgen Klopp had the team playing".

While at AS Roma, Alisson helped the club reach the semi-finals of the UCL last season, only to be ousted by his new club. We were not too bad a year ago but we had to improve and we tried that on the transfer market.

And now, Liverpool have gone a step further and put up a statement by breaking the bank to sign highly-rated Brazilian #1. "We've had talks over the last few days and that's good".

It's not all about going short and safe, either, as Alisson has shown his capacity to play passes between the lines and initiate attacks from deep.

Of course, for a long time it's been clear that Alisson is a top-class goalkeeper, but there was never a real chance to do it.
