Brazil international Alisson Becker became the most expensive goalkeeper in the football history when English club Liverpool paid Italian giants AS Roma 62.5 million euros for the services of the goalkeeper. The shot-stopper made his name as one of the best in the business during his stay in Italy. He was signed by the Merseyside club in order to bolster their team.
And now, it seems the the 26-year-old will be worth every penny, if his performance in the training session is to go by. Alisson produced an unbelievable one-handed save of Marko Grujic in his first session with the club. Liverpool posted the video on Twitter, which has impressed many.
Alisson isn't the only summer signing making his mark at Liverpool. Switzerland international Xherdan Shaqiri, who signed for the Merseysiders from Stoke City for 14.70 million euro, produced a moment of genius in his side's 4-1 win over Manchester United in the International Champions Cup. The left-footed winger scored his side's fourth goal with a sublime overhead kick. The Swiss international came on as a substitute in the 46th minute creating an instant impact.
The 30 year-old couldn't have asked for a better Liverpool debut, as he provided a goal and an assist each in his side's rout of their arch-rivals. He first set up Sturridge on goal, who slotted Liverpool into the lead. The Swiss later went on to score a breath-taking overhead kick from close range sealing an impressive Liverpool victory.
Liverpool have made four signings this summer as they look to challenge for titles this season. Jurgen Klopp's men finished fourth in the league last campaign, and were defeated Real Madrid in the final of UEFA Champions League 2017/18.
Since then, number of changes have been witnessed in the squad. Midfielder Emre Can left the club on a free transfer to Juventus. But the other transfer activity has seen players incoming. Along with Alisson and Shaqiri, the club have also brought in Fabinho from AS Monaco and Naby Keita from RB Leipzig. The four players together have cost Liverpool approximately 180 million euros.
