Chelsea transfer news LIVE Kante decision Golovin update Hazard and Courtois latest

"Alisson is in Liverpool but the deal is not done yet", Monchi told the Roma website.

The Brazil worldwide broke off his holiday in Sardinia on Wednesday to head to Merseyside and is set to sign a six-year contract.

He'll now likely face a three-way go with Simon Mignolet and the incoming record-breaker Alisson.

Alisson, 25, has starred for Roma since his 2016 move from Internacional, and started ahead of Manchester City's Ederson for Brazil at this summer's World Cup having established himself as a world-class goalkeeper. It's obvious to everyone - look at what happened in the Champions League final.

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

"You can be certain that I'll give my all". They made a world-record bid for a goalkeeper and we chose to sell'. I want them to know we're working to build a stronger team. "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".

Although Liverpool's bid has been accepted, this doesn't, of course, prevent Roma accepting bids of the same value or above from other clubs. We are really happy to have him here now.

Just over a year ago Liverpool signed Mo Salah from Roma for $49 million and given the Egyptian worldwide performances for the English Premier League side - he scored 32 league goals in 38 games and helped them reach the Champions League final - Monchi's transfer strategy has come under scrutiny. Alisson is expected to join up with his new team-mates, including Brazilian colleague Roberto Firmino, upon their return. They begin their Premier League campaign on August 12 at home to West Ham.
