Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson to join Roma in July

Rio de Janeiro, May 1 (IANS) Brazil goalkeeper Alisson will join Italian Serie A club Roma on July 1, according to media reports.

A 10 million-euro ($11.4 million) transfer was agreed by Roma and Brazil’s Internacional Club months ago, with the only sticking point being when the 23-year-old would make the move, reports Xinhua.

Alisson made his international debut in Brazil’s 3-1 victory over Venezuela in a World Cup qualifier in October.

He has made 100 appearances for Internacional since his fist-team debut in 2013.

On Friday he was named by Brazil coach Dunga in a preliminary 40-man squad for the centenary edition of the Copa America in June.
