While Liverpool’s activity in the transfer market might not be moving fast enough for some, the club continue to do good business signing key members of this Champions League and Premier League winning side to new long-term deals.
To that end, following recent announcements of new deals for Trent Alexander-Arnold and Fabinho, the Reds today announced that goalkeeper Alisson Becker—arguably the best at his position in world football—would be extending his stay at the club..
“I think I didn’t waste too much time to think about that,” Alisson said about signing his new contract. “It’s something we just built in those last three years, the confidence, the trust that I have in the club and the club has in myself.
“For me professionally, it’s the best decision, it’s the same decision as I took when I first came here. Since I arrived here, I started to win trophies with this amazing team, with this amazing group. I started to develop myself in many aspects in football, in my life.”
According to journalists with ties to the club, the 28-year-old shot stopper’s new contract will run through the summer of 2027, ensuring long-term stability at one of the most important positions on the pitch for the club.
It’s an extension that speaks both to the club’s belief in the player as well as to the player’s belief in the club continuing to be highly competitive domestically and in Europe in the coming years—and to a player who is comfortable on Merseyside.
“Also my family,” Alisson added of the reasons he chose to extend his stay. “My wife is really happy here, she’s happy for my children, for myself, for herself as well. We found a purpose in our life here and I’m really happy to continue wearing this shirt.”
