The 28-year-old joined Liverpool from Roma in the summer of 2018 on a six-year deal.

Alisson is just half-way through that contract, with three more years still left to go, but he deserves a new deal having proven crucial to the Reds recent successes.

Liverpool won the Champions League in 2018-19 thanks to his brilliant form, and he was also impeccable in goal to help Jurgen Klopp’s men finally win a first-ever Premier League title in 2019-20.

The Brazilian international was not able to help out in their attempt to defend the title last term, but still played a massive role as they clinched a place in the Champions League places having come very close to missing out on the competition.

Alisson bagged the winner after scoring a 95th-minute header from a corner to secure a 2-1 away win against West Bromwich Albion last season, becoming the first-ever Liverpool goalkeeper to score a goal in any competition, and the first Premier League goalie to score a match-winning goal.

He was awarded Liverpool’s Goal of the Season award as a result, and he surely deserves an improved contract.

The Anfield outfit are looking to challenge for every available trophy in 2021-22, and they can count on their excellent goalkeeper to deliver.
