Juventus defender Danilo has hinted that he would like to see Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker make the move to Turin, with the Brazilian fullback keen to see more international teammates at the club.
Speaking to the Athletic, the 31-year-old right-back revealed that many of Europe’s biggest teams all have Brazilians who are the most important players at clubs, such as Casemiro at Manchester United and Marquinhos at PSG, with Alisson also a key a man for Liverpool.
The 30-year-old has arguably been the Reds’ player of the season in what has been a year to forget for the Merseyside giants, who look set to miss out on top-four for the first time in Jurgen Klopp’s tenure as Liverpool manager for a full season.
Indeed, whilst Alisson isn’t leaving anytime soon, Danilo has teased that he would like to see the £67m Liverpool player make the move back to Italy, with the Reds shot-stopper a player who could thrive for Juventus if such a move was to ever happen.
Danilo said: “Look at the top sides and they all have Brazilians who are either captains or hard workers. There’s Marquinhos at PSG, Thiago Silva at Chelsea, Casemiro at Madrid and then Man United. Alisson at Liverpool. Ederson at City, and Fernandinho before him.”
The Brazilian international added: “The perception of Brazilian footballers has changed and so where there was once a clash with Juve, all of these players could come here and be in the team for years. I’d love to have Casemiro. He’d be at home here.”
Danilo is dreaming if he believes Alisson could join Juventus one day
As one of Liverpool’s most important players, it’s hard to imagine Alisson leaving Anfield anytime soon, with the Brazilian tipped to become a key part of Klopp’s latest rebuild on Merseyside in the coming years, which is why it’s hard to imagine Danilo’s dream of the keeper moving to Juventus coming true.
Whilst a return to Italy could be possible, Alisson is very much at the peak of his goalkeeping abilities, and as long as this remains the case, the Brazilian will be Liverpool’s starting keeper and a player who commands respect and influence around Anfield for the seasons to come.
