Alisson set for Liverpool medical on Thursday

Liverpool make €70m bid for Roma's Alisson - reports

Chelsea also want the Brazil global but Liverpool know the time has come to move.

Alisson is set to move to the Premier League for a world-record fee for a goalkeeper after keeping 17 clean sheets in 37 Serie A appearances last season.

Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho have been two of the highest-profile departures, but Klopp has been putting together a team over the last three seasons which have gradually grown together.

Thibaut Courtois: The victor of the Golden Glove for best goalkeeper at the World Cup is expected to join Real Madrid for £31m, according to Marca. Los Blancos had been set to sign David De Gea in the summer of 2015 before the infamous "fax machine" incident scuppered the move.

Another goalkeeper, and one many consider to be among the best around.

Alisson had been linked with Liverpool for some time and was subject of an unsuccessful inquiry back in January.

In a shorter transfer window this summer, the deadline closes on 9 August. But, Liverpool have swooped in recent months, and have been the resounding favourites to secure his services. It's a music to Liverpool's twelfth man and has brought a wave of excitement! Loris Karius seemed to be finally filling that void in the second half of the 2017-18 season.

In terms of Alisson, Liverpool have emerged as favourites at 2/5 with Chelsea at 11/4.

Alvaro Odriozola, who joined Real Madrid, previously played for fellow Spanish club Real Sociedad.

There were also murmurings of a possible Chelsea hijack.

Liverpool have met the €75million asking price for the Brazil global and been granted permission to speak to the player about a possible transfer to Anfield.

Roma and Brazil custodian Alisson Becker is believed to be on the verge of a switch to Anfield, which would push Karius down the pecking order and perhaps out of the club, and the Scot believes that Klopp is doing the right thing.

Alisson is very much in demand, with Chelsea also reportedly interested, but it looks like Liverpool have beaten them to the punch.

When Jurgen Klopp was asked about Liverpool's troublesome goalkeeping situation in February, he said: "My favourite solution, always, is that we do it with our boys".
