Liverpool make world-record swoop for Roma stopper Alisson

Liverpool signed Mohamed Salah from Roma last season but despite the good relationship the clubs enjoy the Italian club would not hesitate to sell Alisson to any other club that matches their valuation.

Chelsea are also targeting Alisson as a potential replacement for Thibaut Courtois, who is wanted by Real Madrid.

Liverpool fans are so desperate for Brazilian custodian Alisson Becker to sign for their beloved Reds, that they started celebrating when Alison Becker confirmed the news of the transfer on Twitter.

Should the Brazilian global make the move to the Premier League he would overtake Italian Gianluigi Buffon as the most expensive goalkeeper of all time.

"Klopp has got so much right this season and during his tenure as Liverpool manager, but he has not solved the goalkeeping problem and he has to make sure that issue is resolved this summer".

5 most ridiculous moments from that disturbing Trump-Putin press conference
House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) contradicted the president, saying there was "no question" about Russia's election interference. The damage inflicted by President Trump's naivete, egotism, false equivalence, and sympathy for autocrats is hard to calculate.

Current Liverpool #1 Loris Karius had the worst game of his life in the Champions League final loss to Real Madrid, and Liverpool have been on a mission to acquire an upgrade ever since.

Alisson Becker now knows just how serious Liverpool are about bringing him to Anfield this summer.

Karius also made a mistake in a following pre-season friendly against Tranmere Rovers as he spilled a free-kick which directly led to a goal.

The Roma stopper had a distribution accuracy of 83% per 90 last term, a clear upgrade on both Karius (72%) and Simon Mignolet (75%) respectively - and he even registered an assist in Serie A last term.
