Liverpool and goalkeeper Alisson are close to agreeing on a contract extension.
The Brazilian has been a key part of the club’s success and according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano while speaking on his Here We Go Podcast, both parties are positive about the contract talks.
“They are really, really progressing in talks with Alisson on a new contract. So, Alisson is getting closer to signing a new contract with Liverpool. It will take some weeks, maybe months because that’s the timing for these kinds of things but Alisson is getting really, really closer to signing a new contract with Liverpool,” Romano said.
The 28-year-old had setbacks last season with injuries and the loss of his dad but played a vital role in ensuring that the Reds qualified for Champions League.
After keeping a total of 36 clean sheets in his first two Premier League campaigns, Alisson managed just 10 this time around, as the Reds finished 17 points adrift of champions Manchester City.
