The 25-year-old goalie signed a long-term contract with the Reds after undergoing a medical, the club said on its website on Thursday, without providing further details, reports Efe.

Alisson had kept three clean sheets in Russian Federation prior to that 2-1 Belgium defeat, while he recorded 17 cleans sheets from 37 Serie A games last season.

Monchi said he could understand Roma fans being unhappy at seeing Alisson leave, but said he believed it was the right business decision.

'Alisson? The market figures have changed, £65m for a goalkeeper happened for the first time and we couldn't say no. (This includes five Premier League players).

Alisson's performances for Roma in the 2017/18 season caught the eye of many, and starting for Brazil ahead of Ederson at this summer's World Cup tournament was confirmation that he's well on his way to becoming one of the best goalkeepers on the planet.

Alisson said he made the move to Anfield from Roma to take an "upward step" in his career.

The importance of Liverpool signing Alisson made his mega-money fee inconsequential, according to Jurgen Klopp.

The Champions League fixtures are yet to be announced but both sides are in the competition and now undergoing preseason before the start of the new club campaign.

Liverpool will be hoping that Alisson is as successful as their last recruit from AS Roma, Mohamed Salah. "We met again in the game when we were up against each other [in the Champions League in April]", Alisson told Liverpoolfc.com.

"Lets be happy that we've got him for next season and hopefully the season after that".

However, Klopp did warn Liverpool fans Alisson may need some time to adapt to the Premier League - though is excited about the prospects.

"The pre-season is very bad, the positive thing of the pre-season is only for the young boys that have a fantastic opportunity to train with us", the Man United manager explained.

Communication at the back is key in the Premier League and Alisson being able to speak English will really help Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk, Dejan Lovren and Andy Robertson.
