Liverpool have announced that goalkeeper Alisson has become the latest player to commit his long-term future to the club.

On Tuesday evening, it was announced that his compatriot Fabinho had signed an extension to his Anfield deal.

And the Reds have now announced that Alisson has followed suit by penning a contract until the summer of 2027.

“I didn’t waste too much time thinking about it. It’s something we built in those last three years, the confidence, the trust that I have in the club and the club has in myself,” he told the club’s website.

“Me and my family, we are really happy here. My kids are settled in England, in a different country but they are growing up in that way. So we are really happy.

“I’m really glad that I can keep going on with my work here, doing a good job here. So, I’m really happy to make this decision – that is not hard for me.”

The 28-year-old, who joined from Roma in 2018, has made 130 appearances for the Reds, keeping 57 clean sheets and even scoring one memorable goal – a winner away to West Brom last season which helped secure Champions League qualification.
