Alisson reveals Salah text message before goalkeeper’s move to Liverpool

  • Alisson's transfer to Liverpool 'at a very advanced stage,' says Roma

"The 25-year-old signed a long-term contract with the Reds after undergoing a medical and completing the formalities of his switch at (training centre) Melwood today", said the Liverpool website.

Though Alisson's performances for the Serie A outfit last term were impressive, as Roma reached the semi-finals of the Champions League, in which they were knocked out by the Brazilian's new employers, the £67m fee still represents an astronomical outlay for a goalkeeper.

Alisson, who began his career with Internacional in his homeland, was Brazil's No. 1 at the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer.

And three-time World Cup victor Pele is also hoping Alisson can thrive at Anfield, as the 77-year-old sent a message to his compatriot on Twitter.

In a deal worth £65million (€72.8m), Klopp has massively strengthened the weakest part of his team and allayed fears that Loris Karius or Danny Ward would start the season as the club's no.1.

Alisson has become the most expensive goalkeeper on the planet with his fee easily eclipsing the £34.7m Manchester City paid Benfica for his compatriot and global team-mate Ederson last summer.

"Then it's not a long thought, to be honest, it's only that you need to have a little talk with the owners!"

The rationale behind that decision was simple; Alisson is just that good.

Alisson's transfer to Liverpool 'at a very advanced stage,' says Roma

While Klopp is diplomatic in his quotes regarding Karius and Mignolet's abilities, there is no doubt that Alisson will usurp his two rivals for the Liverpool goalkeeper's jersey next season. They were quite excited, so we did it.

"I actually think now they (Liverpool) have got a chance, they can win the league", Saunders told talkSPORT.

There was a world-class goalkeeper on the market, and the club gave us the opportunity to sign him.

Liverpool have spent big on Alisson after he failed to make a single error leading to a goal last season playing for Roma.

"He needs to adapt to the English Premier League, that's how it is".

It's not all about going short and safe, either, as Alisson has shown his capacity to play passes between the lines and initiate attacks from deep.

That is undeniably true, and fans will soon see just how good their latest signing can be.
