Liverpool fans are finding it hard to contain their excitement about the latest transfer news, after Italian reports claimed the Reds are finally making their move for Alisson Becker.
Liverpool fans are absolutely desperate for a new goalkeeper. After Loris Karius’ horror show in Kiev, plenty of fans were ready to stand by the German, but he has since made two Sunday league errors in pre-season and the overwhelming majority are now ready to cut him loose.
Roma’s Alisson has been constantly linked with a move to become the Reds’ new number one, and multiple Italian outlets think it could finally happen this week.
According to various Italian reports, Jürgen Klopp is ready to sanction a huge bid for the Brazilian shot stopper, and a reliable Rome-based journalist has confirmed the interest.
Alessandro Austini, who has been spot on through Roma’s very busy summer window, says Alisson is extremely likely to leave this summer, and has even added that Liverpool are currently ahead of Chelsea in the race for his signature.
Fans are struggling to contain themselves, as many of them feel this is the missing ingredient needed to make a proper title charge.

In my opinion, Alisson Becker is one of the biggest signings that we could make in our current position. A top quality goalkeeper would help solidify continued CL football as well as challenging for major honours. Also, him picking Liverpool over Chelsea would be a big statement.

Everything is coming together at Liverpool. Chelsea just sacked another manager, Kante and Willian are linked to Barcelona, and Hazard’s future with Chelsea is uncertain. Chelsea is regressing.
