Alisson was Brazil's number one at the World Cup and is highly regarded as one of the best goalies in the world right now.

Chelsea and Liverpool are ready to battle it out for Roma goalkeeper Alisson this summer, who will cost a world record fee for a shot-stopper.

Having instead brought in Xherdan Shaqiri from Stoke for the much smaller sum of £12m, Klopp now has a wealth of attacking and creative options at his disposal including last season's Premier League golden boot victor Mo Salah.

Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho have been two of the highest-profile departures, but Klopp has been putting together a team over the last three seasons which have gradually grown together.

The Brazilian goalkeeper has been fighting for a transfer away from Italy this summer and has attracted the attention of Real Madrid and Chelsea. Alisson is a goalkeeping maestro who has an huge potential to turn Liverpool's biggest weakness for many years into a major strength. Alisson could sort Liverpool's issues and would bolster Reds' XI comprehensively.

Heading into this summer's transfer window, Alisson had become their priority, with De Gea happy and settled at Manchester United.

The goalkeeping conundrum at Anfield has been all too well known. Loris Karius seemed to be finally filling that void in the second half of the 2017-18 season.

"It's obvious to everyone - look at what happened in the Champions League final".

Liverpool's stance regarding Alisson appears to be similar.

There were also murmurings of a possible Chelsea hijack.

He claims that Liverpool have prepared a six-year contract for the Brazil global.

The 25-year-old also played a starring role in Roma's remarkable run to the Champions League semi-finals, which was ended by Liverpool.

Klopp is today overseeing the world record signing of AS Roma goalkeeper Alisson Becker, but says fellow German Karius still has his backing.

Other seasoned Liverpool fans are rightfully nervous about the massive deal, as the team has spent a lot of money since Jurgen Klopp took over in 2015, including a buyout of Mohamed Salah from Roma in 2017.
