Alisson has arguably been one of Jurgen Klopp’s best signings since joining the club.
The Brazil international was purchased last summer from AS Roma for a then world-record fee for a goalkeeper of £67m. Yet he has repaid that money fantastically, and it may even ending up being a bargain. He was recently named by ESPN as the best shot-stopper in the world, and he also won FIFA’s best goalkeeper’s award. With a save percentage of 76.8% so far at Anfield, he has shown himself to be a rock between the sticks.

His signing came after troubles with the other goalkeepers at Jurgen Klopp’s disposal. Both Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius failed to convince the former Borussia Dortmund manager, with the former being sold to Club Brugge and the latter being shipped out on loan to Besiktas.
Now, according to Fanatik the Super Lig club want to sign the 26-year-old on a permanent deal, and they are willing to pay €8m (£6.9m), albeit in four installments. Considering the Reds spent £4.7m to sign him from Mainz, that would represent a profit of over £2m.
The club’s supporters, it seems, are delighted with the news, and it is Michael Edwards who is receiving a lot of praise. They have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts, and you can see some of the best comments from the social media platform below.
