Official: Liverpool sign Alisson for record Fee

Alisson completed his world-record move to Liverpool on Thursday

Alisson Becker has officially joined Liverpool from Roma in a deal that makes him the world’s most expensive goalkeeper.

Sky Sports understands that Liverpool have paid £67m for the 25-year-old, who has signed a “long-term” contract at Anfield.

It surpasses the £34.7m Manchester City paid in 2017 to sign Ederson, Alisson’s understudy for Brazil.

“I’m really excited, it’s a dream come true to wear such a prestigious shirt for a club of this size that is used to always winning,” Alisson told Liverpool’s club website after completing the deal.

“In terms of my life and my career, it’s a big step for me being part of this club and this family.

“You can be certain that I’ll give my all.”

Alisson also revealed his experience of playing at Anfield last season – when he was in goal for Roma’s 5-2 defeat to Liverpool in the Champions League – was a factor in his decision to move to the club.

“That game definitely did have an influence but I also watched other games,” he said. “I’ve seen other games where I could see the way Klopp had the team playing.

“That has made me really excited to be part of this group. Apart from the fact that the club is massive, the players that have come through here and the titles won.

“Hopefully I can play a part in the history being created here, win titles and be a part of the project that has been developed here in the past few years so we can see Liverpool rise once again.”
