Liverpool told to pay £61m for 25-year-old South American Star

July 20, 2018

Serie A giants AS Roma are willing to lower their asking price for Brazilian stopper Alisson, according to reports in Italy.

The 25-year-old keeper has been rumoured with a transfer to the Premier League this summer with Chelsea and Liverpool mooted as suitors.

The Merseyside Reds need a new No.1 as Loris Karius hasn’t been good enough to compete for titles.

The Blues are preparing for the exit of Thibaut Courtois and have earmarked Alisson as their top transfer target.

Roma were demanding upwards of £70million for Alisson, however, now they are ready to reduce their asking price by £9m.

The news may prompt Liverpool to re-ignite interest in Brazilian keeper who has been in stunning form at the world-cup tournament in Russia.

The Blues have appointed a new head coach Maurizio Sarri, and the former Napoli boss is thought to be a huge fan of Alisson.

The Brazil No.1 impressed for his country at the World Cup and now plans to meet with the club to discuss his future.

Italian giants are still hopeful a bidding war will erupt between Liverpool and Chelsea for Alisson’s services.
