Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson is on the verge of signing a new long-term deal at Anfield, according to reliable journalist Fabrizio Romano.
The Lowdown: Alisson stars for Liverpool
The Brazilian has been sensational for the Reds over the past three years, standing out as one of the best ‘keepers in the world. Indeed, he was named The Best FIFA Goalkeeper at the organisation’s awards ceremony in 2019 for his performances between the sticks at club and international level.
Alisson has made 130 appearances for Liverpool to date, playing a pivotal role in Jurgen Klopp’s side clinching Champions League and Premier League glory. He even popped up with a memorable winning goal of his own in stoppage time against West Brom two months ago when the Reds’ top-four hopes were in peril.
The Latest: Brazilian set to sign new deal
“Liverpool are set to complete the agreement with Alisson to extend his contract until June 2026. The agreement is at final stages. Final details and clauses expected to be fixed in the next weeks, then Alisson will sign his contract extension with LFC.”
The Verdict: Huge news for Reds
This is a major boost for Liverpool, with Alisson surely one of the first names on Klopp’s team sheet given his vast influence.
The Brazil international possesses an aura between the sticks, proving to be a daunting proposition for opposing players and making his teammates feel more at ease.
Part of Alisson’s brilliance is that he makes everything look so simple, when in fact the job he is doing is a very difficult one. You only have to look at his 2018/19 Premier League record, when he conceded only one more goal (22) than kept clean sheets (21), to see how reliable a presence he is as the Reds’ last line of defence.
The hope is that he finishes his career at Liverpool, with many years still left in him and hopefully many more trophies and appearances to come.
