Alisson became the world’s most expensive goalkeeper when Liverpool committed a world record £65million to his capture from Roma.

Here, Press Association Sport takes a look at where the transfer stands in British and world terms.

Nigel Martyn, £1million, 1989

A decade after Francis’ big money move, Martyn became British football’s – and it is believed the world’s – first £1million keeper when he moved from Bristol Rovers, where manager Gerry Francis had been alerted to his talent by the tea lady, to Crystal Palace for that exact figure.

Neymar, £198million, 2017

Paris St Germain shattered the world transfer record when they activated the 222million Euros – or £198million – release clause in Brazil star Neymar’s Barcelona contract during the summer of 2017, dwarfing the £89million Manchester United had paid Juventus for Paul Pogba a year earlier.

Ederson Moraes, 34.7million, 2017
