Liverpool sign Roma goalkeeper Alisson for world-record £66.9mn

Serbia Vs. Brazil Group E- 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia

Alisson made 37 league appearances for Roma last season and helped the club reach the Champions League semi-finals, where they were knocked out by Liverpool.

Brazilian worldwide Alisson is expected to sign for Liverpool on a five-year deal worth €75 million, a world record for a goalkeeper, media reports suggested on Wednesday (Jul 18).

The Reds seemed to have opened the door for the Welsh worldwide after inching closer to the securing Alisson's signature.

Alisson, who had been on holiday in Sardinia after Brazil's World Cup campaign, has cut short his R&R and on Wednesday evening he boarded a flight from Ciampino Airport to Manchester, from where, according to Metro, he will be met by Liverpool officials.

Chelsea have also been linked with Alisson who began his career with Internacional before moving to Roma two years ago.

"Rest assured, I'll give everything on the pitch".

Sir Cliff Richard wins 'substantial' damages from BBC
Sir Cliff denied the allegation and was never arrested, and in June 2016 prosecutors announced that he would face no charges. The BBC has to pay 65 per cent of the $336,000 while South Yorkshire Police, who conducted the raid, will pay 35 per cent.

"At one point in the last few weeks it came up, the opportunity to sign one of the world's best goalkeepers", he said. Klopp acknowledged the size of the fee - the most ever paid for a goalkeeper - but felt his club had to act.

"Since we started the pre-season - people have obviously never been in a hard situation so they think it's amusing to make some noise at the moment when he touches the ball or catches the ball and stuff like that, but that's how it is".

"The league is different, the refs are different, the goalkeeper life is different in the Premier League", the German said.

Liverpool have already signed Naby Keita, Fabinho and Xherdan Shaqiri this summer.

"But of course he still has to adapt and age-wise he can improve, the best years are coming in the goalkeeper life, so it's all good".
