Alisson Becker exposes Napoli transfer link

Alisson Becker has revealed there was bid from Napoli for his signature

The  Liverpool goalkeeper said he could have signed for Napoli rather than Liverpool at the start of last season.

Alisson made a record £65million transfer to Liverpool in the summer of last year from Serie A club Roma.

A host of European side were interested in taking him but has claimed he snubbed a one-on-one meeting with Napoli president as he was determined to join the Reds.

“Napoli tried to bid for me,” Alisson said in an interview with the Independent.

"The president came to me, but if I went to Naples from Roma, I was going to put myself in a tough situation in Italy.

"It’s not an official derby, but there’s a big rivalry between the teams. I admire Napoli a lot, they have a top squad and it’s always hard to play against them, especially when they are at home.

"But I was committed to joining Liverpool."
