Liverpool: Alisson nearing new deal

Liverpool: Alisson nearing new deal -Liverpool News

Liverpool are in ‘advanced talks’ with Alisson Becker over a contract extension, according to Fabrizio Romano.

The lowdown

On Friday, it was confirmed that right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold has extended his deal until 2025.

Alisson still has three years to run in his current contract, having joined Liverpool in 2018 for £67million – a record fee for a goalkeeper at the time (via Sky Sports).

He’s gone on to make 130 appearances for the Reds, keeping 59 clean sheets and earning a host of individual honours including the Golden Glove and Best Men’s Goalkeeper Award in 2019.

Alisson memorably helped Liverpool secure a top-four finish last season with a stoppage-time winner against West Bromwich Albion after coming up for a corner.

The Reds’ assistant goalkeeping coach Jack Robinson has raved about his ‘unbelievable’ ability with the ball at his feet, suggesting that ‘he’s like [Andrea] Pirlo’ (via Liverpool Echo).

The latest

On the back of the Alexander-Arnold announcement, Romano suggested Alisson could be next to agree new terms.

The 28-year-old Brazilian ‘wants to stay’ at Anfield and is said to be deep into negotiations.

The verdict

It’s a little surprising to see Liverpool prioritise a new deal for Alisson, even though he’s arguably the best all-round goalkeeper in world football. The likes of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Fabinho are into the final two years of their deals, so you’d think they’d be ahead in the queue.

But it might just indicate the ease of the negotiations. Alisson has won the Premier League and Champions League with Liverpool and surely hasn’t even considered the possibility of moving elsewhere – fans will likely be delighted if he extends his deal even further.
