The deal arrives as a huge surprise considering Ward has played just 3 first-team appearances for the club since 20212.
Where the Foxes have managed to pluck that figure from is up for debate, but the Reds certainly won’t be complaining about the magnitude of the price.
In a summer when Liverpool have already spent over £100 million on new talent, the signing of Alisson is likely to be their final foray into the transfer market, unless they can accumulate funds from the sale of current players of course.
