Roma announces Alisson arrival
Brazil international Alisson has joined Serie A outfit Roma on a five-year contract.
Roma has added to its goalkeeping corps after announcing the signing of Brazil international Alisson.
Alisson joins from Brazilian outfit Internacional on a five-year deal for a fee of 8 million euros ($9M).
He made 83 appearances in all competitions for Internacional, winning the Campeonato Gaucho with the club four times in a row from 2013 to 2016.
The 23-year-old has also established himself as Brazil’s first-choice goalkeeper since making his international debut in October. He played all three games of the recent Copa America Centenario in the United States as Brazil crashed out in the group stage.
Alisson is expected to fight for the No. 1 goalkeeper spot with Wojciech Szczesny, who is tipped to rejoin the club after spending the last season on loan from Arsenal.
He will wear the No. 19 shirt for Roma.
