Sports lens view
The 28-year-old moved from Roma to Liverpool in the summer of 2018 on a six-year contract.
Alisson is only halfway through that deal, with three years remaining, but he deserves a new deal as it has been instrumental in the Reds’ recent successes.
Liverpool won the 2018/19 Champions League thanks to brilliant form and he was also impeccable in goal to help Jurgen Klopp’s men finally win a Premier League title in 2019-20.
The Brazil international failed to help in his attempt to defend the title last season but nonetheless played a huge role in securing a spot in the Champions League after nearly missing out on the competition.

As a result, he was awarded Liverpool’s Goal of the Season and he certainly deserves an upgraded contract.
The Anfield team aim to compete for every trophy available in 2021-22 and can count on their excellent goalkeeper.
