Alisson fee agreed

Liverpool’s world-record £66.8m bid for Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson Becker has been accepted by his club, Roma.

This now allows the Reds to open talks with the player regarding a potential transfer although it’s not straightforward as there is also reported interest from Chelsea.

With the unreliability of both Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet, manager Jurgen Klopp has made it a priority to bring in a new stopper ahead of next season.
