Liverpool sign Alisson in world-record £67million deal after putting pen to paper on a five-year deal


LIVERPOOL have officially signed Alisson in a world-record £67million deal after the Brazilian put pen to paper on a five-year deal.

The Reds beat Chelsea to the signature of the stopper, 25, making him the world’s most expensive goalkeeper in the process – as Roma confirmed the move.

Alisson will immediately become Liverpool’s first-choice stopper after Jurgen Klopp finally gave up on Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet.

Roma’s sporting director Monchi had suggested the transfer was imminent earlier on Thursday.

Monchi claimed: “Alisson to Liverpool deal will be official soon.

“They made a world record bid for a goalkeeper and we decided to sell Alisson.”

The Brazilian stopper is now the second-most expensive player in Liverpool’s history – behind £75m-man Virgil van Dijk.

Liverpool had been chasing Alisson all summer, but at one stage looked like one of Chelsea or Real Madrid could pip them to the post.

But a series of big-money bids this week has seen Klopp finally land his man, as Roma caved-in and opted to sell.

Roma themselves are now aiming to use their £67m windfall to land £36m-rated Bordeaux winger Malcom.
