2018-19 Premier League - Liverpool Sign Goalkeeper Alisson In Record 72.5-Million-Euro Deal

Liverpool on Thursday signed Brazil goalkeeper Alisson from AS Roma in a world record deal valued at 72.5 million euros by the Italian club.

 "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.

Roma confirmed the value of the transfer for Alisson who featured at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia June 14- July 15,2018
 "ASRoma can confirm that Alisson Becker has completed his move to Liverpool, in a deal that could be worth up to 72.5 million euros," the Serie A club said on Twitter

Alisson becomes Klopp's fourth summer signing after Naby Keita, Fabinho and Xherdan Shaqiri.

The fee beats the previous record for a goalkeeper of 53 million euros paid by Juventus for Gianluigi Buffon in 2001 and the 40 million euros Manchester City forked out to sign Alisson's compatriot Ederson from Benfica last year
