Liverpool Complete Alisson Deal
Liverpool have completed the signing of goalkeeper Alisson from AS Roma. The Brazilian put the final touches on a long anticipated move to Anfield on Thursday evening after months of speculation linking him to Jurgen Klopp’s team.
The Brazilian told Liverpool.com, “I'm really happy, it's a dream come true to wear such a prestigious shirt for a club of this size that is used to always winning. In terms of my life and my career, it's a huge step for me being part of this club and this family. You can be certain that I'll give my all."
Alisson joins on a six year deal for a fee totalling £65m, a world record for a goalkeeper. £56m of that fee is guaranteed, £2.2m of which goes to his former club Internacional. The remaining £9m is dependent on a number of clauses being met.
