Liverpool goalkeeper continues to impress at club and international level.

Liverpool's decision to spend £67 million on Alisson last summer paid off within a season.

He ended the campaign as a Champions League winner, and adjusted almost instantly to English football.

 

Alisson won both the Champions League and Premier League 'Golden Glove' for fewest goals conceded.

Now he has added a third individual honour to his list to go with another team medal.

Alisson won both the Copa America with Brazil last night, and the tournament Golden Glove to go with it.

Remarkably he went through the entire Copa America without conceding a single goal in the run up to the final.

While Brazil's defenders deserve credit too, Alisson's Liverpool performances show he is the constant in a continued run of success.

Liverpool's acquisition of him at £67 million is getting to the stage where it is starting to look cheap.

How much would the Reds charge if another European side tried to tempt him away? A lot more than they paid and probably closer to £100 million.

For Liverpool he should be priceless, they have found a gem, and at just 26, he could keep his role at the Reds for the next decade.
