Liverpool is close to agreeing on a new deal with goalkeeper Alisson Becker that would see him remain at Anfield until the summer of 2026, according to reliable journalist Fabrizio Romano.
There is no doubt that this news will be positive news for most Liverpool fans. Since arriving at Anfield during the summer of 2018, the South American has established himself as the undisputed first-choice goalkeeper at Anfield.
Alisson’s arrival at the Merseyside club has coincided with their rise into one of the world’s greatest clubs as he has helped them to win the Premier League, the Champions League and Club World Cup.
Alisson has clocked more than 100 Premier League appearances since his arrival at Liverpool and at just 28-years-old, he could continue to serve as the club’s first-choice keeper for many years to come.
Meanwhile, Loris Karius, Adrian and Caoimhin Kelleher continue to remain on the books of Liverpool. The club should look to offload Karius permanently as it is evident that he does not form part of their future first-team plans.
Adrian will remain with the club and act as cover for Alisson next season. The vast Premier League experience of the veteran keeper makes him a valuable squad member.
Kelleher has shown potential to be a future first-choice keeper and so should be sent out on loan next season. The youngster did get his chance to play in the top-flight last season amidst Alisson’s injury and so he could attract attention from many Championship clubs to spend time on loan next season.
