Alison Becker stunned Liverpool fans by making an announcement on social media about joining Liverpool as their new goalkeeper.

The reds are reported to have placed a total bid of just under €70M (£62M) for the services of AS Roma, and Brazil's, keeper Alisson Becker. Real Madrid, another possible suitor, have yet to make contact with Roma.

The Brazilian goalkeeper has been fighting for a transfer away from Italy this summer and has attracted the attention of Real Madrid and Chelsea.

Should the Brazilian worldwide make the move to the Premier League he would overtake Italian Gianluigi Buffon as the most expensive goalkeeper of all time.
