Liverpool have been heavily linked with a move for Roma goalkeeper Alisson ahead of the summer transfer window.

The Brazilian international is enjoying a phenomenal season in Serie A and has been a key part of Roma’s progression through to the semi-finals of the Champions League, where they will face Liverpool in a two-legged tie.

In recent times, rumours of Alisson joining the Reds had been quashed due to claims that they are happy to persist with Loris Karius as their first choice goalkeeper for the foreseeable future after some promising displays of late.

However, according to Roma president James Pallotta, Liverpool remain interested in a deal to sign Alisson.

Speaking to Sky Italia, as reported by Calciomercato, the Roma chief discussed the future of Alisson and made it clear that the club will not be selling him any time soon.

However, he could not help but admit that Liverpool remain interested in the shot-stopper, indicating that a potential summer swoop is not yet out of question.

I am not going to sell him. Liverpool want to sign him and we are on very good terms with him. I am sure we will receive some huge offers this summer.

We don’t want to sell him but the decision must also be taken by (Roma sporting director) Monchi and the manager (Eusebio Di Francesco). We want to build the future of Roma around him.
