Brazilian goal keeper, Allison Becker has become the most expensive goal keeper after completing a £65m move to Liverpool.

He has signed a six-year deal at Anfield and becomes the most expensive goalkeeper in history by doing so.

The Merseysiders identified him as their number one choice last season, but were knocked back with the Italians £90m asking price during the winter transfer window.

He becomes the Reds fourth signing following the arrivals of Naby Keita, Fabinho and Xherdan Shaqiri.

Alisson told the club’s official website: “I’m really happy, it’s a dream come true to wear such a prestigious shirt for a club of this size that is used to always winning.

“In terms of my life and my career, it’s a huge step for me being part of this club and this family.

“You can be certain that I’ll give my all.”

Jurgen Klopp feels glad to have one of world’s best keepers in his team.

“At one point in the last few weeks it came up, the opportunity to sign one of the world’s best goalkeepers – then it’s not a long thought, to be honest, it’s only that you need to have a little talk with the owners!” Klopp told the club’s website. “They were quite excited, so we did it.”

Allison will join up with the rest of the squad when they return from the International Champions Cup in United States.
