AS Roma sporting director Monchi has suggested the money on the table from Liverpool for Alisson was simply too good to turn down…
The Reds are on the verge of announcing a £66m deal for the Brazilian, who is currently in the city completing a medical and finalising the terms of his six-year contract [Paul Joyce].
Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, who’s had his ear to the ground on this deal from Day One, tweeted Monchi’s quotes this afternoon.

The 25-year-old will eclipse Gianluigi Buffon and Ederson as the most expensive keeper of all time.
Last term, he was sensational in Serie A and made zero mistakes which led to opposition goals.
If Alisson can take to the Premier League the way we did Italy, Liverpool could be genuine title contenders.
It’s been years and years since we’ve had a no.1 we can trust wholeheartedly.
Hopefully, he’ll have the same positive influence on the team-mates around him that Virgil van Dijk did when he arrived in January.
