Alisson is set to join Liverpool for a world-record fee for a goalkeeper

ROME, Italy, Jul 18- Liverpool have completed the signing of Alisson Becker for a fee of Sh8.8bn (£67mn), subject to the Roma goalkeeper passing a medical, according to Sky in Italy.

The 25-year-old travelled to England on a private jet on Wednesday evening and will undergo a medical with the Reds in the next few days.

Sky in Italy understands the Brazil international has already agreed personal terms and will sign a five-year deal at Anfield.

Alisson is set to become the most expensive goalkeeper in history, with Liverpool surpassing the Sh4.6bn (£34.7mn) fee Manchester City paid for Ederson in 2017.

Alisson will become Jurgen Klopp’s fourth signing of the summer, joining fellow new arrivals Naby Keita, Fabinho and Xherdan Shaqiri at Anfield.

The Brazil international, who featured at the World Cup in Russia earlier this summer, made 49 appearances for Roma last season.

He was part of the side that suffered a 7-6 aggregate defeat to Liverpool in the semi-finals of the Champions League.
