The five most expensive goalkeepers of all time

Liverpool sign Alisson for £65m becomes most expensive keeper

Liverpool signed Brazil global Alisson from AS Roma on Thursday, smashing the world record for a goalkeeper in a deal worth up to £65 million (S$115.56m).

Liverpool's 84 league goals was bettered only by City last season but defensive inconsistency cost them dear as they finished fourth in the league and were beaten by Real Madrid in the Champions League final.

Becker signed with Roma on a record setting £66million ($87million) transfer fee.

Liverpool has given a statement to the rival clubs by signing Alisson for world record fee and the new no.1 has substantially increased the chances of first Premier League title for the Reds.

There was a world-class goalkeeper on the market, and the club gave us the opportunity to sign him. (This includes five Premier League players).

Ederson arrived in the Premier League as something of an unknown quantity when he sealed his move from Portuguese side Benfica to Manchester City last summer.


Roma sporting director Monchi has said the club allowed goalkeeper Alisson to speak to Liverpool after receiving "a significant offer", with the player undergoing a medical on Merseyside. Seemingly exhausted of being let down by other options, Klopp and Liverpool have found an expensive solution, but in doing so they have signed one of the five best goalkeepers in the world.

The Champions League fixtures are yet to be announced but both sides are in the competition and now undergoing preseason before the start of the new club campaign. We are really happy to have him here now. But Totti, who now works as a sporting director for the club, insists they are looking to spend the money on improving the overall quality of the squad.

He continued, "That game definitely did have an influence but I also watched other games".

A report has surfaced claiming that new Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker agreed personal terms with his new club way back in November when talks were first held.

Liverpool will not be pursuing a deal for a recent World Cup victor as we round up the latest transfer rumours on Friday, July 20.

"When I became aware of Liverpool's interest I was very excited". "I understand we have excellent players".
