Shaka Hislop has tipped Liverpool FC to complete a deal to sign AS Roma goalkeeper Alisson Becker in the summer transfer window.

The Reds are thought to be on the lookout for a new shot stopper after Loris Karius’ disastrous performance in the Champions League final.

The German goalkeeper made two high profile mistakes in Liverpool FC’s 3-1 loss to La Liga giants Real Madrid to cast doubt on his long-term future.

Liverpool FC manager Jurgen Klopp dropped Simon Mignolet in the second half of the Premier League campaign in favour of Karius.

The Reds have been linked with a potential swoop to sign Brazil international Alisson from Serie A giants AS Roma this summer.

The Merseyside outfit have also been linked with a bid for Atletico Madrid shot stopper Jan Oblak as well as Stoke City shot stopper Jack Butland.

Former West Ham defender Hislop is tipping Liverpool FC to land Alisson in the summer transfer window.

Asked who the Reds should sign this summer, Hislop told ESPN FC: “Alisson. I’d pay a lot. I think so.”

Liverpool FC finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last term to ensure their continued participation in the Champions League.

The Reds haven’t won a trophy since Jurgen Klopp took over the reins from Brendan Rodgers in October 2015.
