Roberto Firmino has played a big role in convincing Alisson Becker to move to Liverpool FC, according to a report in England.

The Daily Mail is reporting that Alisson is set to move to Liverpool FC ahead of Chelsea FC in the summer transfer window.

The same article states that Alisson received positive feedback about the Reds from inside Brazil’s World Cup squad.

According to the same story, Firmino has been urging Alisson to complete a move to Liverpool FC from AS Roma this summer.

The Reds forward enjoyed his best season at the Anfield outfit last term following a return of 27 goals in 54 games in all competitions.

Liverpool FC have also signed Alisson’s compatriot Fabinho in a £39m deal from Ligue 1 side AS Monaco at the start of the summer transfer window.

The Reds have been touted with a move to sign a new goalkeeper in the summer transfer window following Loris Karius’ poor performance in the Champions League final.

The German shot stopper made two big mistakes in Liverpool FC’s 3-1 loss to La Liga giants Real Madrid in the European Cup showpiece in Kiev back in May.

Liverpool FC finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last term.
