Roma Goalkeeper Alisson Passes Medical Ahead Of Liverpool Move

Liverpool have officially wrapped up a world-record move for Roma and Brazil goalkeeper Alisson.

The 25-year old has been linked with the Reds for quite some time and things really picked up in the last couple of days as a fee of £67 million was agreed with Roma for his services.

Then, it all happened very swiftly - Alisson flew in, signed his contract and passed his medical before Liverpool made the official announcement just now.

He becomes the club's fourth signing in what has been a very impressive window for the Champions League finalists thus far.

Naby Keita, Fabinho and Xherdan Shaqiri have all been drafted in to dramatically improve Liverpool's midfield/attacking options but the arrival of Alisson, a complete goalkeeper and one of the best in the world, is easily their most important investment following Loris Karius' Champions League horror show and subsequent loss of confidence.

With a commanding goalkeeper as the backbone of the side, Jurgen Klopp's side look like serious challengers for the Premier League tile.
