Liverpool have made an offer of €60m, plus €5m in add-ons, for Roma goalkeeper Alisson, according to a report from Italian news outlet Gazzetta.
According to the report, Roma are still holding out for around €70m for the Brazilian international and they feel that with Chelsea and Real Madrid also having an interest in him, they will be able to find a club willing to meet their asking price.
Gazzetta reports that Madrid would still be Alisson’s preferred destination, but there is no clear indication that the reigning European champions are willing to make an official offer any time soon.
The 25-year-old is currently resting after representing his country at the World Cup but his representatives are working hard behind the scenes, ensuring that all options regarding his future are kept open.
Publicly, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has backed Loris Karius to be his number one goalkeeper next season but his latest blunder, in a pre-season friendly with Tranmere, has caused widespread concern amongst the fan base.
Even before Karius’ nightmare performance in the Champions League Final, Liverpool were looking at goalkeepers so it still seems likely that a new shot-stopper will be brought in before the start of the season.
