Liverpool fans thank ‘agent Bobby’ following Alisson’s arrival

During the last few weeks it seemed that Liverpool fans would have to accept that Loris Karius remains the club’s number one goalkeeper.

After the German’s costly mistakes in the Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid in May, most supporters urged for a new figure to go in between the sticks.

The Reds were linked with numerous names around Europe, but for a while it seemed that no deals would be done.

A few days ago, though, everything changed and now Liverpool have world-class stopped Alisson in their ranks.

The Merseyside outfit finalised what BBC Sport claim is a deal worth £66.8m on Thursday night, making the Brazilian the most expensive ever goalkeeper in the world.

Due to the desperate need of a new shot-stopper, it is fair to say that Alisson’s arrival is the most important signing the Reds will make this summer.

On Twitter, Liverpool fans expressed their delight, and some also gave a special mention to the keeper’s compatriot Roberto Firmino.

Many supporters believe that Jurgen Klopp’s false 9 played a hand in convincing Alisson to move to Anfield.
