Alisson was close to joining Chelsea in 2018

Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson rejected Chelsea move to join Liverpool in 2018.

The Merseyside club paid around £67m to bring in Alisson from Roma in the summer of 2018.

Since his move, he has proved to be one of the best goalkeepers in the world and has been a crucial part of Liverpool’s success in recent years.

“I think that game [for Roma at Anfield] served as an experience of living a day at Anfield, seeing the crowd up close. That contributed to my choice for Liverpool,” said the Brazilian.

“If you ask me what it was like to play at Anfield as an opponent I can sum it up for you in one word: horrible. Anfield is a spectacular stadium, when the crowd plays together it’s very noisy — and in that game they were ‘on fire’.

“I had a proposal from Chelsea too, but living that cheered me up a lot to play for Liverpool. So is Klopp. He is a sensational person, one of the great coaches in the history of world football. He’s a guy who does everything he can to make us feel comfortable playing and bring his style to the team.”
