Should the 25-year-old agree personal terms with the club, he'll become the most expensive goalkeeper in footballing history, smashing the record which previously stood at £34.7M - which Manchester City paid to bring in his countryman Ederson to the Premier League last summer.
Liverpool completed their world-record deal for Alisson on Thursday.
"It's hard when you're a sporting director - we received a significant offer for Alisson and we evaluated it".
The Premier League star has been exceptional during Russian Federation 2018 for his nation and it looks like he may finally get his move to the La Liga.
As according to reports from French source RMC, Chelsea and Real Madrid have finally agreed to a deal for shot-stopper and Russian Federation 2018 Golden Glove victor Thibaut Courtois, despite the Blues insistent on keeping the Belgian global.
Upon the arrival of Jurgen Klopp, the tactician placed his faith in Loris Karius as the No.1, but his mistakes in the Champions League final against Real Madrid has all but sealed his fate at the Anfield club.
A bonus for LFC fans is Monchi's ringing endorsement of Alisson as he nears the exit, saying: " Alisson is a top player, perhaps the best goalkeeper in the world".
"I'm sorry but I can not say any more, I'll say everything later".
Monchi admits the departure of the Brazil worldwide is nearly done.
