Transfer agreed for Alisson to join Liverpool

AS Roma can confirm that an agreement has been reached with Liverpool for the permanent transfer of goalkeeper Alisson Becker, in a deal worth up to €72.5 million.

Alisson, 25, will join the Premier League side for an initial fee of €62.5m, the most expensive transfer fee ever paid for a goalkeeper.

The agreement also includes a number of performance-related clauses, on the part of both the player and the English club, that add up to an additional €10m.

The Brazil international joined Roma for a fee of €8m in July 2016, becoming the undisputed No. 1 ahead of the 2017-18 campaign.

During that season he was an almost ever-present as the Giallorossi finished third in Serie A and reached the semi-finals of the Champions League.

Across his two seasons in the Italian capital, the Brazilian made 64 appearances for the club in all competitions.

The club would like to thank Alisson for his service and wish him all the best for the future.
