Numerous Saudi Arabia clubs have made reportedly contact with Liverpool over the possibility of signing Alisson Becker, though the goalkeeper isn’t keen on a move.
According to 90min, Saudi Arabia’s Public Investement Fund (PIF) have used intermediaries to make an approach for the Brazilian international, with Alisson the latest target for the Middle Eastern state.
With Neymar signing for Al-Hilal this week and Aymeric Laporte closing in on a move to Al-Nassr, Saudi Arabia’s grip on football is growing stronger by the day, with Jordan Henderson and Fabinho also making the move.
However, whilst Alisson is now a target, alongside Liverpool teammate Mohamed Salah, the 30-year-old seems uninterested in a move to Saudi Arabia at this stage of his career.
Lauded as ‘special’ by goalkeeping coach John Achterberg, Alisson is at the peak of his powers and is set to play a massive role for Liverpool this season.

Although a move to Saudi Arabia could be financially tempting, the Liverpool no. 1 seems to understand that heading to the Middle East now would be a waste of his best years.
Alisson is too good to move to Saudi Arabia just yet
Saudi Arabia’s spending this summer could have the potential to change football forever, yet whilst some players have been captivated by the figures on offer, Alisson seems to have resented the idea of leaving Liverpool.
And who can blame the Brazilian, who by most accounts is considered one of the best keepers in the world and one of Liverpool’s most important players.
With a massive season coming up for the Reds, Alisson staying put is massive for Liverpool, and a move to Saudi Arabia will simply come too soon for the Brazilian superstar at this stage in his career.
