Liverpool fans hit back at ‘rattled’ rivals amid controversy over Alisson price

Nowadays, astronomical transfer fees are the norm, and most Premier League clubs will have to pay over the odds to get their desired target.

Despite this, whenever a club tables a hefty amount, there is criticism from some quarters, and Liverpool are currently experiencing it.

According to BBC Sport on Wednesday, the Merseyside outfit have had a fee in the region of £66m accepted by Roma for goalkeeper Alisson, who is expected to finalise a switch to Anfield in the coming days.

If the deal goes through, then the Brazil international will be the world’s most expensive keeper.

It will be the second time in seven months that Liverpool have smashed a world-record fee having spent £75m on defender Virgil van Dijk in January.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has been receiving some criticism for the lavish spending after he claimed to reporters in 2016 that he would quit football if world-record fees became the norm.

“If you bring one player in for £100m and he gets injured, then it all goes through the chimney. The day that this is football, I’m not in a job anymore.”

The German coach has been accused of hypocrisy, but now some Liverpool fans are hitting back at the haters.
