Steve Nicol convinced Liverpool FC will sign 25-year-old this summer
The Liverpool FC legend tips the Reds to sign Alisson Becker in the summer transfer window
Steve Nicol is convinced that Liverpool FC will sign AS Roma goalkeeper Alisson Becker this summer.
The Brazil international has been regularly linked with a move to sign the South American shot stopper over the past few months.
Allisson has established himself as a top goalkeeper in Serie A during the past two seasons at the Rome outfit.
However, the Italian giants are rumoured to have slapped an £87m price tag on the goalkeeper’s head to deter interested parties.
Real Madrid have also been linked with a move to sign Alisson and would be able to outbid Liverpool FC for the 25-year-old.
Former Liverpool FC defender Nicol believes Liverpool FC will get Alisson despite competition from Real Madrid this summer.
“This is about the price,” Nicol told ESPN FC. “I would love Alisson at Liverpool.
“As far as I understand, Liverpool have made a bid. I am going to say they have get him.”
Liverpool FC haven’t won the Premier League title but finished in second place in 2002, 2009 and 2014.
The Reds are thought to need a new goalkeeper if Liverpool FC are going to finally win the Premier League title.
