Alisson Becker has agreed a five-year deal with Liverpool FC to join the Reds this summer from AS Roma, according to reports in the British media.

The Liverpool Echo is reporting that the Brazilian shot-stopper has agreed personal terms with the Reds ahead of his medical on Merseyside after Liverpool FC’s world record £66.8m bid for the goalkeeper was accepted by AS Roma.

Alisson was due to have a medical with the Reds ahead of the transfer being finalised, according to the same story.

The same report says that Liverpool FC opted to ramp up their interest in signing Alisson in recent days after it became apparent that Chelsea FC could be set to make a move for the goalkeeper.

On Thursday night, the Merseyside outfit confirmed that Alisson had become their fourth summer signing.

Liverpool FC have been strongly linked with a move to sign a new goalkeeper this summer after Loris Karius’ Champions League final nightmare.

Meanwhile, Chelsea FC are also thought to be potentially on the hunt for a new shot-stopper as the uncertainty about Thibaut Courtois’ future at Stamford Bridge continues.

Courtois has one year left on his current deal at Stamford Bridge and has so far refused to sign a new contract with the west London side.
