In latest Liverpool transfer news, Liverpool have agreed a €75million (£63mil deal) for AS Roma goalkeeper Alisson Becker to make him the most expensive goalkeeper of all time, reports Di Marzio. Previously, Gianluigi Buffon was the most expensive goalkeeper following his move from Parma to Juventus almost 13 years ago. The latest Alisson to Liverpool report claims that Liverpool have now beaten Chelsea to sign Alisson and the player is expected to undergo a medical tomorrow after he will arrive in Liverpool later tonight. Di Marzio and team are confident that Liverpool will sign Alisson in coming days and are the manager Jurgen Klopp has even talked with the goalkeeper to convince him of joining his Anfield revolution.
Liverpool preparing for Alisson’s medical
Soon after Di Marzio broke the news on Liverpool’s improved €75million bid, Liverpool are said to be preparing a medical for Alisson and complete his signing before the end of this week. Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is not ready to go into the new season with either Loris Karius or Simon Mignolet in goal and is hellbent on signing Alisson from AS Roma even if it means to make Alisson the most expensive goalkeeper of all time.
According to reports, Liverpool had submitted a €60million bid in last 24 hours which was outrightly rejected and AS Roma warned Liverpool to improve the bid or see Alisson instead join Chelsea. AS Roma has given both Liverpool and Chelsea until the end of this week to agree a transfer for Alisson or else the Brazilian will not be allowed to leave for any price, reports Di Marzio.
Chelsea are facing the possibility of losing Thibaut Courtois to Real Madrid this summer after Real Madrid offered €35million for the Belgian keeper and has already agreed personal terms with the keeper, according to RMC Sport. Chelsea are eager to sign Alisson as a replacement for Courtois, however, Roma’s €75million valuation has made Chelsea consider their decision. Instead, Chelsea are looking to sign Kasper Schmeichel from Leicester or bring Petr Cech back to the club after Cech was sold to Arsenal in the summer of 2015.
Liverpool are enjoying as tunning 2018 Summer Transfer Window
Ask any Liverpool fan and their reaction to the latest Liverpool transfer news and rumours has been stunning after The Reds managed to add Naby Keita and Fabinho to their squad for next season and are also in talks to sign Alisson Becker and Nabil Fekil in coming weeks. If Alisson and Fekir are both signed by the club, Liverpool should be the genuine title challengers and with Jurgen Klopp’s free-flowing football, Manchester City and Manchester United must be wary of the fact that Liverpool can indeed beat any side and even win the Premier League title.
