Liverpool FC will have to pay a world record fee for a goalkeeper to complete a deal for Alisson Becker, according to a report in England.

The Guardian is reporting that Serie A giants AS Roma are set to demand £79m for the Brazil international in the 2018 summer transfer window.

The same article states that the Italian club are reluctant to lose Alisson to Liverpool FC this summer given his rising status.

According to the same story, AS Roma hope that their asking price will scare off the Reds and provide the Italian club with the chance to hand Alisson a new deal.

Indeed, the Champions League semi-finalists are thought to be ready to hand the Brazilian shot stopper a £1.3m pay increase.

Alisson has managed to oust Manchester City rival Ederson as Brazil’s number one goalkeeper ahead of the World Cup in Russia next month.

Liverpool FC were 7-6 winners against AS Roma in the Champions League semi-finals to secure their spot in the European Cup final.

The Reds lost 3-1 to Real Madrid in the Kiev showpiece after Loris Karius made two errors in the Liverpool FC goal.

The Merseyside outfit haven’t won the Premier League title but will be hoping to challenge Manchester City next term.
