£67m Alisson signs on

Roma sporting director Monchi insists the impending exit of Alisson does not demonstrate a lack of ambition as the goalkeeper closes in on a world-record move to Liverpool.

Though a 5-2 defeat at Anfield effectively ended Roma's hopes of making it to Kiev, Alisson described his memories of the April clash on Merseyside as forming part of his decision to sign for Klopp's men.

And, during his first interview as a Liverpool player, the Brazil goalkeeper revealed that Salah, a man he can not wait to team up with again, had been in touch shortly before he visited Melwood for the first time.

"You can be certain that I'll give my all". "As the negotiations were at an advanced stage, I replied to him straight away saying 'Calm down, I'm on my way!' We've only sold two players and we've signed 10, and we're going to continue looking for players to make us an even bigger club".

Sources also said that in May, Roma put a £90m valuation on the goalkeeper - who also drew interest from Chelsea and Real Madrid - before lowering their asking price to £75m last month.

The Reds seemed to have opened the door for the Welsh global after inching closer to the securing Alisson's signature.

Roma teammate Diego Perotti told Sky Sport Italia that he was sorry to see Alisson leave: "He was a really important goalkeeper for us and his saves rescued a lot of points and games last season, but that is football", he said.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that the club are unlikely to do anymore transfer business this summer. They were quite excited, so we did it.

He transferred from Benfica to Manchester City for 35 million pounds last summer and helped them win the Premier League title in his first season with the club.
