An agreement is said to be at the final stages, with the final details of the deal and clauses expected to be sorted in the coming weeks.
The 28-year-old joined Liverpool from Roma in 2018 on a six-year deal.
Alisson is just halfway through that contract, 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 could not help 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.
He became 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, and he 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.
