Liverpool break world record for Brazilian goalkeeper, Alisson

Liverpool has completed the signing of Alisson Becker for a world-record £67m fee from AS Roma.

The deal sees the Brazilian surpass the £34.7m fee Manchester City paid for Ederson in 2017.

According to Sky Sports, the 25-year-old is scheduled to depart Rome and will undergo a medical with the Reds in the next few days.

Alisson will become Jurgen Klopp’s fourth signing of the summer, joining fellow new arrivals Naby Keita, Fabinho and Xherdan Shaqiri at Anfield.

The Brazil international, who featured at the World Cup in Russia earlier this summer, made 49 appearances for Roma last season.

He was part of the side that suffered a 7-6 aggregate defeat to Liverpool in the semi-finals of the Champions League.

Alisson started his career at Internacional in 2008, spending eight years there before joining Roma in 2016.

Last season, he racked up the second most clean sheets in the Serie A.

The 25-year-old has been capped 31 times by Brazil.
