Liverpool and Brazilian goalkeeper Allison Becker have agreed to pen down a new contract with the English Premier League side. The goalkeeper will sign the contract when he returns from international duty with Brazil. Allison’s contract will be due by the end of this month, and he is willing to extend his contract with the club.
Allison Becker To sign New Contract with Liverpool
The Brazilian international is currently away preparing for the Copa America and is one of several players the club wants to open negotiations for a new contract with. The 28-year-old joined Liverpool from the Italian side AS Roma on a six-year deal in 2018.
Allison Becker was the world’s most expensive keeper at the time he was bought from Roma, and he has gone on to win the Champions League and Premier League. The highlights of his stay in Liverpool will be the goal he scored against West Brom in May. The goal won the club’s goal of the season award, becoming the sixth keeper to score a Premier League goal and the first Liverpool keeper to score with a header.
Liverpool had a challenging season as many of their key players were nursing one injury or the other, and so we’re unable to retain their Premier League title but secured qualification for the Champions League with their last game against Crystal Palace, which ended 2-0.
