The latest on Liverpool's £53 million bid for Alisson

Reports in Italy suggest that Liverpool have submitted a bid in the region of €60 million for Alisson but reliable journalist Dave Maddock denies these claims.

After a fairly indifferent World Cup in Russia, Roma’s Alisson hasn’t become more valuable than he was before he jetted off for FIFA’s showpiece.

The Brazilian would prefer a move to Real Madrid but Gazzetta Dello Sport reports that a bid of €60million (£53m) plus €5million (£4.4m) has been submitted to Roma by Liverpool for the impressive goalkeeper.

Alisson was outstanding for Roma during the 2017/18 season and was a large factor in the Calcio A side making it to the semi-finals of the Champions League where they were ultimately dispatched by Liverpool.

Dave Maddock, who works for the Mirror, contradicts the report which says that Liverpool are prepared to offer Alisson a contract worth €6million (£5.3m) over a five-year period.

Gazzetta Dello Sport also claim that Roma want at least €70million gross (£61.8m) and that they are not willing to wait around the entire summer for an acceptable offer as they will need time to find a replacement if he does leave.

It’s clear that Alisson wants a big move this summer and while I am personally desperate to see Loris Karius replaced, I believe that Jürgen Klopp sees the Brazilian shotstopper as being worth over £60 million.
