Transfer: Liverpool favourite to sign goalkeeper Alison Becker ahead of Chelsea


Gianluca Di Marzio has reported that the Brazilian goalkeeper is closing in on a move from Roma to Liverpool.

In 2016, Liverpool lost the League Cup final against Manchester City partly due to a rather characteristic mistake in goal from Simon Mignolet.

After Liverpool's defeat to Real Madrid in the Champions League final, it emerged that Karius had suffered a concussion after being elbowed by Sergio Ramos.

Now, however, with a world record bid being launched for Allison, it looks as though Klopp will have one of the strongest sides in England at his disposal.

Courtois could move to Real Madrid and new Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is a firm fan of Alisson.

Liverpool fans can rejoice as Alisson is seemingly a goalkeeper who can pose as a physical presence in the box.


Sky Italia reports that the Reds have won the race to sign Alisson.

Liverpool have been strongly linked with the 25-year-old in recent months but appeared to shelve their interest after being put off by Roma's hefty valuation and there was talk that Klopp was ready to keep faith with Loris Karius.

Liverpool reportedly decide to make a bid in the region of £62m for Roma goalkeeper Alisson.

Alisson played five times for Brazil at the World Cup in Russian Federation where his side suffered a quarter-final defeat to Belgium.

However, Roma are thought to be holding out for a further €5 million for the former Internacional stopper, while the Reds also face competition from Real Madrid and Chelsea for the Brazil global.
