Roma warn Liverpool of world record fee for Alisson

Roma are demanding a world record fee for Alisson Becker this summer.

Calciomercato.com says Liverpool will need to break a world-record if they wish to sign Alisson this summer with reports in Italy claiming he'll cost them in excess of £90million.

The Brazilian's international team-mate and Manchester City number one Ederson cost the Citizens £34.7m last summer, a current world-record for a keeper.

But the fee touted for Alisson by Calciomercato would blow that out the water.

The 25-year-old, who has been described as the 'Lionel Messi of goalkeepers' by former Roma coach Roberto Negrisolo, admitted he did nearly leave the Serie A side last summer.

He said: “This is the most important year of my career. I didn't want to leave, but I would have had to think of myself and my targets."
