Liverpool have completed the signing of Alisson Becker for a fee of €75m (£67m), subject to the Roma goalkeeper passing a medical, according to Sky in Italy.
The 25-year-old travelled to England on a private jet on Wednesday evening and will undergo a medical with the Reds in the next few days.
Sky in Italy understands the Brazil international has already agreed personal terms and will sign a five-year deal at Anfield.
Alisson is set to become the most expensive goalkeeper in history, with Liverpool surpassing the £34.7m fee Manchester City paid for Ederson in 2017.
Alisson will become Jurgen Klopp’s fourth signing of the summer, joining fellow new arrivals Naby Keita, Fabinho and Xherdan Shaqiri at Anfield.
The Brazil international, who featured at the World Cup in Russia earlier this summer, made 49 appearances for Roma last season.
He was part of the side that suffered a 7-6 aggregate defeat to Liverpool in the semi-finals of the Champions League.

The deal was too good to turn down, according to Roma sporting director Monchi.
“We haven’t finalised anything yet [with Alisson],” he said on Thursday morning. “But it is true that the negotiations are advanced and he’s over in Liverpool now.
“When a very substantial offer comes in, you have to consider it. We weighed up the pros and cons and decided to speak to Liverpool.”
He added: “Selling Alisson would not show a lack of ambition. For me, ambition is about doing the right thing after thinking everything through.”
Klopp ‘had to get’ Karius replacement
The memory of the Champions League final meant Liverpool were forced into finding Loris Karius’ replacement, says Graeme Souness.
Alisson made 49 appearances for Roma last season, including the 7-6 aggregate defeat to Liverpool in the semi-finals of the Champions League.
Liverpool have now agreed to sell goalkeeper Danny Ward to Leicester City for £10m, according to Sky sources.
