    Liverpool complete Alisson Becker transfer

    The 25-year-old signed a long-term contract with the Reds after undergoing a medical and completing the formalities of his switch at Melwood today.

    Upon putting pen to paper, the Brazil international told Liverpoolfc.com: "I'm really happy, it's a dream come true to wear such a prestigious shirt for a club of this size that is used to always winning.

    "In terms of my life and my career, it's a huge step for me being part of this club and this family.

    "You can be certain that I'll give my all."

    Alisson, who began his career with Internacional in his homeland, was Brazil's No.1 at the World Cup in Russia this summer.

    Jürgen Klopp on Alisson: 'He's one of the world's best'

    Brazil international Alisson put the finishing touches to his transfer to Liverpool from AS Roma on Thursday - a move he described as a ‘dream come true’ during his first interview as a Red at Melwood.

    Klopp is delighted with the 25-year-old’s arrival on Merseyside and the manager has explained why he decided to make the stopper his fourth summer recruit, after Naby Keita, Fabinho and Xherdan Shaqiri.

    The boss told Liverpoolfc.com: “At one point in the last few weeks it came up, the opportunity to sign one of the world’s best goalkeepers - then it’s not a long thought, to be honest, it’s only that you need to have a little talk with the owners! They were quite excited, so we did it.

    “I think it’s something we have to do. He has nothing to do with the price, we have nothing to do with the price, it’s the market, that’s how it is and we will not think a lot about it.

    “It shows the value of goalkeepers, of course, in this moment. It will happen a lot in the next few weeks I guess and that’s it, so we are really happy to have him here now.

    “His English is surprisingly good and he is a real personality. He has meanwhile a lot of experience in the last few years, in Europe and in Rome, he’s played there on an outstandingly high level and he did the same at the World Cup.

    “It was for Brazil not too lucky, that’s how it is, but then he played a really good World Cup. So it’s just a good moment.”

    Klopp went on to praise Alisson’s all-round attributes, but insisted the stopper will need time to adapt to life in the Premier League and can still improve further.

    “The full package is just good,” the boss said.

    “How we all do, he needs to adapt to the English Premier League, that’s how it is. The league is different, the refs are different, the goalkeeper life is different in the Premier League.

    “But that’s not important now because again, we got him here because of his existing strengths, which is in all goalkeeper departments the highest level.

    “But of course he still has to adapt and age-wise he can improve, the best years are coming in the goalkeeper life, so it’s all good.”.

    Alisson: That night at Anfield influenced my decision

    The atmosphere generated inside Anfield on the night Liverpool beat AS Roma in their Champions League semi-final played a part in convincing Alisson Becker to join the club this summer.

    April’s first-leg clash between the sides will take its place as one of the great European evenings at the famous stadium, with the Reds claiming a thrilling 5-2 win – having led by five goals at one point – that put them on course for the final.

    Alisson was the unfortunate goalkeeper on the receiving end of Liverpool’s sensational attacking play as the supporters created waves of noise to roar on Jürgen Klopp’s team.

    It was an experience that stuck with the Brazil international and, in his first official interview after signing for the club on a long-term deal, he revealed its factor in the transfer.

    “Yes, in part it did influence the decision,” Alisson told Liverpoolfc.com.

    “When you make an important decision like this it’s not just a decision to change clubs, it practically changes your entire life, my family’s life, my wife, my daughter.

    “That game definitely did have an influence but I also watched other games. I’ve seen other games where I could see the way Klopp had the team playing.

    “That has made me really excited to be part of this group. Apart from the fact that the club is massive, the players that have come through here and the titles won, hopefully I can play a part in the history being created here, win titles and be a part of the project that has been developed here in the past few years so we can see Liverpool rise once again.”

    Welcome to LFC.

    Dare I say it but this really feels like the final piece in the jigsaw, over the moon with this signing.

    The older you get, the less excited it seems you get by transfers.

    but i have to admit i actually feel giddy and excited by this one.

    Im like a teenager with this one.

    Its hard to believe but we've just smashed the world record fee for a goalkeeper :cool:

    This feels like a seminal moment for LFC, too often in the past after a good season we've endured a miserable summer losing players or missing out on main targets. This summer feels different, the only player we've missed out on is because we walked away and we've signed 4 very good players!

    I'd really love to see a top attacking player come in to round it all off perfectly but I'm optimistic heading into next season either way.

    Colour me delighted with this. Absolute top class players right through the spine of the team, but this is the one position we all (even those of us willing to back Karius if he stayed number 1) wanted addressed.

    Roll on the new season.

    This is fucking huge lads & lasses. For pretty much my entire life supporting this club, goalkeeper has been a weakness that was constantly adressed but never solved. Paint it whatever you want, but it no longer is. Kudos to FSG.

    The little things matter - he is our No 1 keeper and should wear No 1. Having that number on Karius' back would be ridiculous.

    Welcome Alisson!
