Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker is named the Premier League's best signing of the season in the Sports Mole 2018-19 Reader Awards.

Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker has been voted as the Premier League's best signing of the season in Sports Mole's 2018-19 Reader Awards.

The Brazilian shot-stopper became the most expensive goalkeeper in football history last summer when he joined Liverpool from Roma for a fee which could rise to £67m, going on to win the Golden Gloves in his debut Premier League campaign.

Alisson's 21 clean sheets and league-low 22 goals conceded helped Liverpool to mount a sustained title challenge which eventually saw them miss out by one point on the final day of the season.

The 26-year-old claimed 57.6% of the votes as the best signing of the season, some way clear of second-placed Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Raul Jimenez.

Jimenez scored 13 goals to help promoted Wolves to a seventh-placed finish, and he is joined in the top three by teammate Joao Moutinho.

Bournemouth's David Brooks and Leicester City loanee Youri Tielemans - the latter of whom only arrived in the Premier League in January - make up the top five, beating competition from West Ham United's Felipe Anderson, Watford's Gerard Deulofeu and Everton duo Richarlison and Lucas Digne.
