The Reds completed the record-breaking signing of goalkeeper Alisson on Thursday night, with the Brazilian joining Xherdan Shaqiri, Naby Keïta and Fabinho as the club's fourth summer arrival.

The 25-year-old signed a long-term contract with the Reds after undergoing a medical and completing the formalities of his switch at Melwood.

Alisson had always been linked with a move away from Roma after enjoying a fine season in 2017-18, playing a big role in the side which reached the Champions League semi-finals, before being eliminated by the Reds.

Alisson played in all five of Brazil's matches at the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™, where A Seleção were eliminated in the quarter-finals after a 2-1 defeat to Belgium.

Perhaps the World Cup has played a part too as there were a number of exceptional goalkeeping performances, particularly from Courtois and Schmeichel, as the former won the tournament's Golden Glove award.

Loris Karius' and Simon Mignolet's Liverpool careers also appear to be up in the air but Klopp gave nothing away when asked what he could say about their futures.

Liverpool new boy Alisson revealed he received a text message from Mohamed Salah as he closed in on his record-breaking move from Roma. They were quite excited, so we did it.

While at AS Roma, Alisson helped the club reach the semi-finals of the UCL last season, only to be ousted by his new club.

"That game definitely did have an influence but I also watched other games". He has nothing to do with the price, we have nothing to do with the price, it's the market, that's how it is and we will not think a lot about it. And if they manage to win the Premier League and/or the Champions League in the coming seasons, the money spent on Alisson will be worth it several times over.

Of course, for a long time it's been clear that Alisson is a top-class goalkeeper, but there was never a real chance to do it.

Virgil van Dijk became the world's most expensive defender when he joined Liverpool from Southampton for $99 million (NZD $147 million) in January. "We've had talks over the last few days and that's good".

Referring to the fee paid by Liverpool, Klopp said: "I think it's something we have to do". Although, obviously, keeping the goals out rather than banging them in.
