Liverpool FC have agreed a £66.8m transfer fee for Roma goalkeeper Alisson Becker, according to a report in England.

BBC Sport is reporting that the Merseyside outfit has managed to strike a deal to sign the Brazil international from the Serie A giants in the current transfer window.

The same article states that Champions League runners up Liverpool FC are set to hold talks with Alisson to see if the Reds are able to reach an agreement with the Brazil number one.

Liverpool FC have been linked with a move to sign the South American on a regular basis over the past few months following Loris Karius’ disastrous performance in the Champions League final.

The current Reds number one made two mistakes in a 3-1 loss to Real Madrid in Kiev to raise questions about the German shot stopper’s future at the Merseyside outfit.

Liverpool FC spent a world record transfer fee on Netherlands international Virgil van Dijk from Premier League rivals Southampton in the January transfer window.

Liverpool FC finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last season in Jurgen Klopp’s third season in charge of the 18-time English champions.
