The Reds have confirmed that they have signed goalkeeper Alisson Becker from AS Roma in deal worth €75 million (R1.16 billion).
 
The shot-stopper, who was also linked with Chelsea, is now the most expensive goalkeeper in history after the Reds broke the previous record fee of €52.88 million, which Juventus paid Parma for Gianluigi Buffon.
 
"I'm really happy, it's a dream come true to wear such a prestigious shirt for a club of this size that is used to always winning," Alisson told the club's official website.
 
"In terms of my life and my career, it's a huge step for me being part of this club and this family.
 
"You can be certain that I'll give my all."
 
Alisson becomes Liverpool's fourth signing of the window following the arrivals of Naby Keita, Fabinho and Xherdan Shaqiri.
 
 
Do you think Alisson will be a success for Liverpool? Let us know in the comments section below.
