Cristiano Ronaldo's Al-Nassr interested in signing Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker Transfers

Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson Becker has been out of action this season due to injury, but as soon as he returned he was named in the starting line-up. He reigns as Liverpool’s absolute guardian deity, a position that Irish goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher has not been able to seize.

He is not only a shot stopper, but is also highly capable in many other areas, such as directing from behind, leaping from inside the penalty area, passing and defending one-on-one, and is renowned as one of the top five goalkeepers in the world.

Saudi Arabia are keen on the defender, who is expected to be entrusted with the goalmouth again next season. According to Foot Mercato, Al-Nassr, who are second in the Saudi Professional League, are interested in acquiring the player and have made him a target this summer.

Raphael Varane and Casemiro, both of Manchester United, are also in the running, and it seems likely that Saudi Arabia will continue the trend of bringing name value players into the team following last summer.

However, Liverpool will not sell their regular goalkeeper and a trip to the Middle East is not a realistic option. With a contract remaining until 2027 and a large transfer fee to acquire him, it is difficult to even reconcile Liverpool’s and Saudi Arabia’s asking prices.

In any case, what kind of player will Al-Nassr bring in as they look to add further star reinforcements…?
