Despite reports from Brazil claiming that Liverpool have submitted a £57.2m for Alisson, the Liverpool Echo insists that no offer has been sent to AS Roma.
Although most every supporter was bitterly disappointed to learn that Nabil Fekir’s move to Liverpool collapsed at the 11th hour, the general consensus is that signing a worldie of a goalkeeper is far more important.
Alisson and Jab Oblak are the two that are most attractive but have £80 million price tags which are unattractive to those working behind the scenes at Melwood.
The Liverpool Echo now report that a bid has not been submitted for Alisson and his future is expected to lie elsewhere, with Real Madrid a likely destination.
On Monday, reports in Brazil indicated that a €65million (£57.2m) bid had been sent to AS Roma but the Echo’s Ian Doyle has quashed these suggestions and has even gone so far as to say: “it is understood Alisson would prefer a move to Real Madrid.”
Liverpool told Roma earlier this year not to expect a bid from them this summer and Doyle says that this has not changed.
Meanwhile, the Reds continue to monitor their own goalkeeping situation but as things stand, a new shot-stopper is not expected to imminently arrive at Melwood.
