This transfer window is already very, very exciting.
Last night, we sealed the deal of AS Monaco’s Fabinho, having already secured Naby Keita from Rb Leipzig.
And now, Dominic King in the Daily Mail is claiming Jurgen Klopp’s Reds would sanction a world-record bid for AS Roma stopper Alisson.
The report says Liverpool would be willing to pay upwards of £60m, which almost doubles the £35m fee Manchester City paid for Alisson’s Brazilian understudy last summer – the current most for a goalkeeper ever.
King reckons Klopp is happy to splash huge money on a problem position following the success of Virgil van Dijk – who at £75m – is the world’s most expensive ever defender.
Loris Karius’s outrageously poor performance in the Champions League Final proves we need an upgrade at the nearest possible opportunity.
Alisson is a far superior stopper who has all the attributes Klopp requires of a keeper.
We’d advise Liverpool to get the deal done at whatever cost Roma ask. For over five years we have had a goalkeeper who simply isn’t up to scratch – and that must end.
