Liverpool prepared to smash goalkeeper world record for Alisson Becker

Alisson Becker Gianluigi Donnarumma

Liverpool would be making big strides with the capture of Alisson, and at 25 years of age he could provide the Merseyside club with stability between the sticks for the best part of the next decade.

Rome-based newspaper Il Messaggero hare reporting that Liverpool have made an initial offer to sign Roma's Brazilian keeper Alisson, who played a key role in the club's run to last season's Champions League semi-finals.

Alisson made 49 appearances for Roma a year ago, in what was his second season at the club following his transfer from Internacional.

Recent speculation suggests Madrid have pulled out of the race for Alisson leaving Liverpool and Chelsea to go head-to-head over a deal which is expected to cost in excess of £60m.

Harper headlines Home Run Derby field, will face Freeman

But a positive update arrived on Tuesday morning because, according to reports in Italy, Liverpool have finally submitted a formal bid for Alisson.

This update comes a day after La Repubblica reported that the Reds were close to meeting the Calcio A side's valuation of Alisson and merely had to bid slightly more to agree on a fee.

The Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp, has been guarded about his plans for a new goalkeeper after Loris Karius' disappointing end to the season.

However, Chelsea have also identified the Brazilian star as a potential replacement for Thibaut Courtois as the Belgian is being strongly linked with a move back to Spain after refusing to sign an extension to his contract - which has just one year remaining.
