Goalkeeper Alisson could be heading to Premier League next season as reports suggest that the 25-year-old netminder is being tracked by Liverpool. Apart from Klopp’s desire to sign the Brazilian in the summer, it has been Alisson’s dream to play for the Reds in the future due to his childhood love for the Merseyside club.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is considering buying a long-term goalkeeper which will provide more competition for Karius who is fast becoming Liverpool’s first choice goalkeeper at the expense of Simon Mignolet.
Alisson has been phenomenal for Serie A side Roma so far this season, keeping 14 clean sheets in 34 appearances in all competitions. According to Brazilian media outlet OUL, Liverpool are currently in advance talks with the player’s representative over a possible switch to the 18-time Premier League Champions in the summer.
OUL also reports that the deal could see him become the most expensive goalkeeper in the world should both parties reach an agreement before next season begins.
Roma might fail to sanction the player’s move to Anfield as they won’t want to lose one of their best players in the summer.
Meanwhile, Liverpool are through to this season’s Champions League quarter-final after their goalless draw against Portuguese Champions Porto. The Reds proceed to the next round of the competition with a 4-0 aggregate victory over Porto.
