Alisson wants future cleared prior to the World Cup with Liverpool looking the most likely destination for the Brazillian shot-stopper.
The speculation around Alisson Becker’s future with AS Roma is set to come to an end with the player himself revealing that the matter would likely be sorted before he pulls on a Brazillian jersey in the World Cup, after Brazil beat Austria 3-0 on Sunday’s friendly as Liverpool wait on the wings.
“I believe and I hope that everything will be resolved before the start of the World Cup,” Alisson said.”To be honest, I left everything in the hands of my agents.” The Goalkeeper has had a fantastic season in net for the Romans and since attracted many suitors including Liverpool and Real Madrid with Jurgen Klopp keen on getting a new No.1.
Alisson is in a rich vein of form for the Lupas and has bailed them out on multiple occasions as the team enjoyed an amazing run to the semi-finals of the Champions League, producing a very impressive result against a Barcelona side when they came back from 4-1 down to knock them out at the Stadio Olimpico. He was the keeper in Serie A, beating the likes of Gianluigi Buffon, Samir Handanovic, Gianluigi Donnarumma to it.
But the 25-year-old has not given up on a possible stay at the Italian capital as stated by GOAL.”There are possibilities on which we are working, but always together with Roma and with respect to my club,” he said.”We will see what will happen this week.”
With Simon Mignolet considered as a second choice and a nightmarish display at the Champions Final by Karius, who might never wear a red shirt again, Klopp and the Kop will be hoping that Alisson will the man guarding the Liverpool net next season as they look to end the wait for a Premier League title.
As the cliche goes “Goals win matches, clean sheets win Championships”, Liverpool have struggled to keep the ball out of the net under the German’s reign. Though the additions of Van Dijk and most recently Fabinho will help the cause, the opportunity to sign Alisson must not be allowed to pass by. One must only look at their rivals, Manchester United, to realize what a goalkeeper, who can singlehandedly secure vital points for his team, brings to the table.
