Liverpool will reportedly have to pay a sum of money in the region of £44 million if they wish to sign goalkeeper Alisson from Roma.
The Reds are on the hunt for a new shot-stopper after both Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet have failed to convince that they can hold down the first-choice position on a long-term basis during the opportunities presented to them this season.
Alisson has established himself as arguably one of the world’s premier goalkeepers. He has managed to become the first-choice goalkeeper of the Brazil national team, beating off competition from Manchester City keeper Ederson in the process.
Alisson recent admitted that he was flattered to have received attention from other clubs in Europe.
“I am happy in Rome,” the 25-year-old was reported as saying. “It’s always a pleasure to feel that lots of people are monitoring you but my head is focused on Roma. I leave my future in the hands of God.
“In June, maybe we will speak about it again but for now I am concentrated on Roma.”
