Liverpool have agreed a £67million deal to make Alisson Becker the world’s most expensive goalkeeper.
A keeper has been Jurgen Klopp’s biggest priority since Loris Karius’s nightmare Champions League Final performance when his two blunders were blamed for Real Madrid’s 3-1 triumph.
After repeatedly spurning offers for their Brazilian No 1, Roma finally accepted they weren’t going to be able to keep their keeper. It’s now up to the player to agree personal terms with the Premier League club.
Liverpool are likely to act fast, as Chelsea have also been making enquiries since it became clear that Belgian Thibaut Courtois looks likely to be on his way to Real Madrid.
