Blow for Liverpool as Alisson’s price-tag set to skyrocket

According to a number of reports in the Italian media this afternoon, AS Roma have opened negotiations with goalkeeper Alisson regarding a new contract with the club.

World-class shot-stopper

Alisson, full name Alisson Becker, is a 25-year-old Brazilian international, and has emerged as one of the most impressive goalkeepers in world football since taking over as Roma’s no.1 this season, following the end of Wojciech Szczęsny’s loan with the club.

The former Internacional star has already earned 22 international caps, and is currently viewed as the Selecao’s first-choice between the posts, ahead of Manchester City’s Ederson.

Alisson’s stellar form to this point in the campaign has seen the South American linked with a whole host of top European clubs, with Premier League giants Liverpool long named as the side expressing the most genuine interest in his services.

The Reds are known to be keeping an eye out for reinforcements in the goalkeeping department, due to the consistently-questionable performances of both Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius.

New deal

However, as per a report from Football-Italia.net (via Calciomercato) this afternoon , Roma have opened negotiations with Alisson regarding a new contract at the Stadio Olimpico, which could see the Brazilian’s wages rise from 1.5 million Euro-per-year to 5 million Euro-pear-year.

The most significant aspect of the proposed new deal, though, is the rumoured buyout clause being proposed by the Giallorossi, who hope to fend off interest from all of Liverpool, Real Madrid and PSG by raising Alisson’s price-tag to a hefty 90 million Euro.

Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino put on an excellent display against Southampton last week and Mirror Sport have revealed exactly how much the Brazilian earned in bonuses.

Apparently, the former Hoffenheim attacker is on basic wages of around £68,085-a-week. However, he can earn more than double of that amount per week if he keeps performing the way he did against the Saints.

Firmino’s contract at Liverpool states that the South American will pick up £25,000 for each of his first five goals, £45,000 for his goals between six and 10, £65,000 from 11 to 15, and £85,000 from then on.

Also, the Liverpool forward is paid £31,000 per assist. Therefore, the Brazilian earned around £116,000 in bonuses against Southampton.

Firmino scored his 20th goal of the season against Pellegrino’s side and he will be looking to carry that form into the Champions League now.

The Reds travel to Porto for the first leg of the knockout stages this week. Klopp will be hoping that the likes of Firmino and Salah can get on the scoresheet and secure a valuable away lead for his side.
