AS Roma sporting director Monchi has warned interested parties that Roma will not wait around forever to see if an acceptable offer comes in for Alisson.
The goalkeeping situation at Liverpool has reached the point where, if there is a genuine desire to win silverware next season, then Jürgen Klopp simply cannot have Loris Karius and Danny Ward as his two first choice shot-stoppers.
The former has proven he is wholly unreliable – even in pre-season friendlies – and the latter is inexperienced and Klopp cannot afford to be babysitting goalkeepers going into his third campaign as Liverpool manager.
Roma’s Alisson is available at the right price and while he is way too expensive, I am of the opinion that the Reds should make a move for him as he is a considerable step up from what is already available at Melwood.
Roma sporting director has warned Liverpool, among others, that the Calcio A side will not wait around forever to receive an acceptable offer for Alisson.
“The will to sell Alisson depends on Roma,” he said.
“We always evaluate what comes in and decide for the good of Roma above all. I don’t want to talk about replacements, because Alisson hasn’t left.
“If that moment comes, we’ll think about it. Is there a deadline? Everything has its time, if it’s August 5 at 3am… Everything has its time.
“If you believe what you read in the press, when I leave here today I’ll have three or four calls from England and Spain, even Germany.
“Maybe you were distracted when I heard from the Germans.”
