Liverpool bid for Roma keeper Alisson

Alison Becker announces Liverpool transfer but there is a twist in the tale

Chelsea's interest depends on Thibaut Courtois' future, while Real Madrid have made the Belgian their main target. Roma are believed to be studying the offer, which falls just short of the 75 million euros they are asking for but Liverpool hope it will be tempting enough for them to accept.

Roma goalkeeper Alisson has picked Liverpool as his preferred destination ahead of Chelsea, according to reports. Real Madrid, another possible suitor, have yet to make contact with Roma.

Liverpool have submitted a £62 million offer to Roma for the Brazil worldwide as the club step up their search for a new first-choice goalkeeper ahead of the new season.

A regular for the Brazilian national side, no mean feat considering his competitor for the No.1 jersey is Manchester City custodian Ederson, Becker is reportedly in favour of a move overseas.

Alisson, 25, has been with Roma since joining from Brazilian side Internacional in 2016 and made 37 Serie A appearances last season.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was forced to defend goalkeeper Loris Karius last week after another mistake - this time in a pre-season friendly against Tranmere.

While Liverpool fans are fiercely loyal to manager Klopp, his eagerness to stand by Karius has been a point of major concern in recent weeks, with Anfield goal-scoring great John Aldridge among those voicing his assertion that the Reds need a new No.1.

Alisson has always been Jurgen Klopp's preferred solution for the problematic goalkeeping position at Liverpool, with the manager's interest pre-dating Loris Karius' calamitous performance against Real Madrid in the Champions League final.
