Shaka Hislop believes Real Madrid target Thibaut Courtois is still better than Liverpool FC number one Alisson Becker.

The Reds signed Alisson in a world record £67m deal from AS Roma in the 2018 summer transfer window.

Alisson will be tasked with improving the Liverpool FC defence following the inconsistent performances of Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet.

The Brazil number one has arrived at the Anfield outfit with a huge reputation following his first full season at AS Roma.

Courtois, on the other hand, is being linked with a move to La Liga giants Real Madrid in the current transfer window.

The Belgian goalkeeper has won two Premier League titles, the FA Cup and the League Cup at Stamford Brige.

Former West Ham goalkeeper Hislop believes Courtois is a superior goalkeeper than Alisson.

“Right now Courtois,” Hislop told ESPN FC.

“As good as Alisson was in his first season in Rome, Courtois we have seen over a longer period. I give Courtois the edge.”

Liverpool FC started their summer spending with the £39m addition of Brazil international Fabinho from Ligue 1 side AS Monaco.

The Reds finally landed Naby Keita in a £48m deal from Bundesliga outfit RB Leipzig to further improve their options in the middle of the park.

Liverpool FC brought in Switzerland international Xherdan Shaqiri in a £13.5m deal from relegated Stoke City to bolster their attack.
