'Really, really close': Fabrizio Romano makes exciting Liverpool claim
Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker is “really, really close” to signing a new contract at Anfield, according to Fabrizio Romano.
The 28-year-old has barely put a foot wrong for the Reds since joining in 2018 for a then world-record fee for a goalkeeper.
Alisson has helped Liverpool win the Premier League, the Champions League, the FIFA Club World Cup and the UEFA Supercup.
And last season, he scored a crucial goal in the race for a Champions League place, a dramatic last-minute winner against West Brom.
In addition, Alisson kept 10 Premier League clean sheets last term, plus a further five in the Champions League.
Speaking on the Here We Go podcast, Romano suggested it’s just a matter of time before the Brazilian pens a new deal.
“So Alisson is getting closer to signing a new contract with Liverpool.
“It will take some weeks, maybe months because of course with the timing for these kinds of things.
“But Alisson is getting really, really close to signing a contract with Liverpool.”
Alisson’s current contract runs until the summer of 2024.
