Liverpool make offer for Roma's Alisson Becker but no fee agreed

  • Roma's Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson vies with Liverpool's Egyptian midfielder Mohamed Salah during the UEFA Champions League semi-final second leg football match AS Roma vs Liverpool

Courtois's time at Chelsea could be up in the Blues land Alisson.

Liverpool's pre-season is already underway, with regular keeper Loris Karius featuring in their friendly games, but the German is known to be error-prone.

The current Liverpool bid, when converted to euros, is 70 million ($81 million), and that is 17 million more than what Juventus paid Parma to acquire Gianluigi Buffon in 2001; the current goalie record.

The Echo adds that speculation began to mount when the player's agent, Ze Maria Neis, "liked a photoshopped image of Alisson wearing a Liverpool shirt on Instagram".

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has personally spoken to Roma goalkeeper Alisson as the Reds look to secure a deal to sign the Brazilian global.




The report claims that Liverpool have made a bid of £62m, with £53m being offered up front and the rest being made up in add-ons. They'll use the money made on offloading Courtois to Real by meeting Roma's asking price, and then some.

Who are Liverpool most likely to sign this summer?

It's reported that the Merseysiders have stepped up their pursuit of the 25-year-old after rumours of their interest swirled throughout the transfer window. Karius is looking unlikely to keep his place with Liverpool. The 25-year-old initially made an encouraging return to the side but his two awful errors in the Champions League final undermined his first choice claims and he made another mistake in last week's pre-season friendly at Tranmere Rovers.

"Klopp opened the door for Sturridge to return to the side, saying after Saturday's goalless draw at Bury that no member of his squad was being ruled out".
