An actress with more or less the same name as Liverpool target Alisson Becker saw her tweet explode on social media after she jokingly announced she'd signed for the Reds.
The Roma and Brazil No.1 has been linked with the Champions League finalists for quite some time but things appear to have heated up today, with reports that Liverpool are in talks over a £62 million move.
Liverpool have made their move for Alisson. Bid of around £62m. #LFC- James Pearce (@JamesPearceEcho) July 17, 2018
Liverpool fans are understandably buzzing over what could be their next bit of business in the transfer market, and Alison Becker, who is verified on Twitter, decided to cash in.
Excited to announce that I will be joining Liverpool as a goalkeeper!- alison becker (@thealisonbecker) July 17, 2018
Her tweet was very well done and seemed to fool quite a few people.
I THOUGJT YOU WERE THE REAL ALISSON FOR FUCKS SAKE- ri (@ThisIsntRiaz) July 17, 2018
This actually got me for a second before I checked that this is someone completely different :joy::joy::joy:- Anvay Mishra:flag_br: (@itsAnvaycuz) July 17, 2018
I fell for it for a second. Would have worked if you changed the pic- Sam (@salahmaneac) July 17, 2018

Very funny indeed. It would be have been a whole new level completely if Alison had changed her Twitter profile picture to her goalkeeping namesake.
Still, the joke is ongoing as someone's already changed her Wikipedia to confirm the news that she's now made the move to Merseyside.
If Alisson's move to Liverpool doesn't materialise, or he elects to join Chelsea, 41-year old Alison will undoubtedly get some abuse from fans in her mentions.
