Liverpool are set to reward Alisson Becker with a new contract after he returns from Copa America with Brazil this summer.

Liverpool signed Alisson from AS Roma in 2018 for £66.8million, a record fee for a goalkeeper at the time.

Since joining, Alisson has been a crucial part of Liverpool's spine, who have been incredibly successful in winning the Premier League and Champions League and many other trophies.

Alisson has also won numerous individual awards since joining, including The Best FIFA Goalkeeper in 2019 and he recently won Liverpool's Goal of the Season award with his headered winner against West Brom which was a massive part in helping Liverpool qualify for Champions League football next season.

The Brazilian shot stopper signed a 6 year contract until 2024 when signing for Liverpool and according to Spotrac he currently earns £150k a week, making him Liverpool's 5th highest earner.

If the 28-year-old does sign a new contract it will probably bring him inline with the top earners at Liverpool who are making between £180k to £200k a week.

It is a lot of money but if it means tying the best keeper in the world down for the rest of his career then it's something Liverpool should 100% do. Alisson has been one of the main reasons behind our success and he has embraced Liverpool's culture since joining so he definitely deserves the recognition and a new contract.
