Liverpool close in on record €75m deal for goalkeeper Alisson

Liverpool are closing in on the signing of Brazil's World Cup goalkeeper after agreeing a fee of £66.9million, according to The Guardian, who will become the world's most expensive shot-stopper.

Liverpool's eagerness to find a replacement for the much-maligned Loris Karius appears to have forced them into the big-money move, although reports suggest personal terms are yet to be agreed.

You wouldn't put it past the Merseysiders either, especially with the way Klopp's new look side is beginning to shape up for next season.

Monchi confirmed that Alisson is now in Liverpool, saying "Alisson is in Liverpool and we're at a very advanced stage, but the deal is not done yet".

The Wakulla County case occurred in 2016 while the Jackson County case was reported in 2018 and was fatal. Health officials, however, said this label is misleading since the bacteria do not attack healthy skin.

What's key, though, isn't just his goalkeeping ability, but rather the consistency of his performances between the sticks. The Premier League club made an initial €70mn bid for the Brazilian on Tuesday, which was rejected, but the clubs have now reached a deal. By comparison, Alisson didn't commit a single error leading to a goal across 49 league or European outings for Roma last season.

Alisson is Liverpool's fourth summer signing after the arrivals of Naby Keita from RB Leipzig (£52.8mn), Fabinho from Monaco (£40mn) and Xherdan Shaqiri from Stoke City (£13.5mn). Fans are wondering exactly how Liverpool's spending can continue.

The new competition commences on 6 September, with the finals taking place next June, and the Liverpool manager believes the constant demand on worldwide players will have serious consequences. I hope we are in a situation where we don't need to think about using these two against West Ham.

Despite his desire to go back to work ahead of schedule, a plan Liverpool's manager dismissed, the 28-year-old will have a three-week break to recover, meaning he is not due to report for duty until August 5. Is Alisson the last piece in the jigsaw?
