Liverpool fans are excited as Alisson Becker is linked with new Anfield contract
Liverpool’s Alison Becker is reportedly in line for a new contract this summer – and some of the club’s fans on Twitter are extremely positive about the speculation.
According to the Mirror, the Reds are planning to reward the Brazilian goalkeeper with a new deal at the end of the season.
It is understood that the Merseyside club have an option of adding an extra year to the 28-year-old’s contract, which would mean it still has three years remaining, but they want to reward him with an “improved” deal.
Additionally, teammate Fabinho is also in line for a new deal at Anfield.
Alisson, who has been one of the world’s elite goalkeepers since his move to Liverpool in 2018, was in the news for an unfamiliar reason in the last game.
He remarkably popped up with a bullet header in stoppage time to earn his side a precious win at West Brom, which means they are still firmly in the hunt for a Premier League top four finish.
A selection of Liverpool supporters on social media believe their shot-stopper thoroughly deserves an improved contract offer.
In fairness, he’s perhaps made a couple of uncharacteristic mistakes at times this season. But has remained one of the strong performers in the XI with some great saves in-between the sticks, and his headed goal on the weekend only confirmed his cult hero status even further.
Here are some Reds fans discussing the Alisson speculation that he’s set to pen a new deal:
Reward him? He rewards us by staying. One of the best out there

Deserved: just hope next seasons will not miss many games (I hope that he spend all his bad luck this year)
