Speaking on the Here We Go Podcast, Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Alisson is getting closer and closer to signing a new contract at Liverpool.
The Brazilian goalkeeper is one of the Reds’ most important players, and it’s been rumoured for a long time now that the Anfield outfit want to give him a new deal.
Fortunately for Jurgen Klopp’s side, it looks as though things are progressing well on that front, with Romano claiming that Alisson is getting really close to signing a new contract.
What’s been said?
Romano shared an update on the ongoing situation with Liverpool’s contract negotiations.
“Yes, the situation is that they are working on Fabinho and van Dijk, they will be working on Mo Salah, but they are really, really progressing with talks with Alisson over a new contract, so Alisson is getting closer to signing a new contract with Liverpool. It could take some weeks or a few months because of the timings on these things, but Alisson is getting really really close to signing a new contract with Liverpool,” Romano said.
This must be to hear if you’re a Liverpool fan.
Alisson is not only one of the best players in the world, but he’s also a perfect fit for Jurgen Klopp’s system, so the fact he may be about to put pen to paper on a new deal is a massive boost to the Reds’ future chances at silverware.
This Liverpool team should still have a few years of peak performance in it, and if they’re going to get back to winning major trophies, Alisson will undoubtedly play a massive part in that.
Fingers crossed we get an official announcement on this front sooner rather than later.
