As Roma goalkeeper Alisson is undergoing a medical at Liverpool after the Italian club received a "significant offer", sporting director Monchi said yesterday.

Alisson had always been linked with a move away from Roma after enjoying a fine season in 2017-18, playing a big role in the side which reached the Champions League semi-finals, before being eliminated by the Reds.

Ederson's bravery, reflexes and at times breathtaking distribution gave City's superb attacking players the platform they needed to go and win last season's Premier League title in record breaking fashion.

After 44 league starts and 115 overall appearances for Internacional (winning the domestic league title in each of his four seasons with the club), Alisson departed for Roma in July 2016.

In addition to Brazilian Fabinho, manager Juergen Klopp has also added fellow midfielder Naby Keita, forward Xherdan Shaqiri and goalkeeper Alisson Becker to the squad. "It's the market, that's how it is and we will not think a lot about it". In essence, that means Liverpool have paid €62.5 million for a 25-year-old goalkeeper who has been first-choice in Europe for just one season, something many skeptics were quick to point out in the hours after the deal was made official.

Alisson said he made the move to Anfield from Roma to take an "upward step" in his career.

A former England worldwide footballer and manager, John Barnes has said that Mohamed Salah could leave Liverpool despite signing new contract.

I'm really happy with our signings to be honest, so now let's use the last few weeks to be as good as possible.

Alisson is Liverpool's fourth major signing since they finished the 2017-18 season fourth in the Premier League and were beaten by Real Madrid in the Champions League final.

On Thursday morning, Liverpool Football Club sent Twitter into a frenzied celebration by announcing Alisson as having joined the club.

"I understand the fans' view".

Liverpool broke the bank to make Alisson the world's most expensive goalkeeper.

"He needs to adapt to the English Premier League, that's how it is".

Liverpool have the money to buy the player they want in a position of need, and are doing so.

"When I became aware of Liverpool's interest I was very excited".
