The great performances of the Brazilan goalkeeper are confirmed by stats. Roma has a jewel in its roster.

There’s nothing to say about Alisson Becker. The Brazil International is definitely one of the best keepers in the world and the Roma fans are in love with him.

On July 6, 2016, the former Roma Sporting Director Walter Sabatini signed him from Internacional paying approximately €8 million. Although Alisson was already a top player, he had to wait for the right moment to show all his qualities. Luciano Spalletti left him on the bench during the 2016-17 season. The Tuscan coach preferred to play the Polish keeper, Wojciech Tomasz Szczęsny.

Since Spalletti’s departure from the Italian capital, the Brazilian became a starter for the giallorossi. He made 29 appearances so far playing in the Serie A, Champions League, and Coppa Italia. His great performances have been emphasized by the local and international press.

Nowadays, several top European clubs are chasing Alisson and in the near future, Roma may be willing to make a fat profit on him.
According to the WhoScored stats, Alisson Becker is in the third position of a special ranking in reference to the best save success rate in Europe’s top five leagues this season.

The first in the standings is Atletico Madrid‘s Jan Oblak (91%), followed by Barcelona‘s Marc-Andre ter Stegen (84.9%) and Alisson Becker (81.1%).
