Liverpool stage world-record bid for Alisson

Paris Saint-Germain's French goalkeeper Alphonse Areola leaps to catch the ball during the French Ligue 1 football match between Bordeaux and Paris Saint Germain at The Mamut

Chelsea are said to be keen on Alisson too and his agent has reportedly held talks with them, but Liverpool are the only club to have made an official offer to Roma.

Monchi, the Director of Sport at the Italian outfit, said recently that Roma don't need to sell to balance the books but such a big offer, a world receord fee for a goalkeeper, would be a windfall which any club would find hard to resist.

Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius was back in the spotlight last week after a 3-2 friendly win against Tranmere at Prenton Park saw him spill a free-kick which allowed the hosts to score.

Liverpool's concern is that Chelsea may also become involved in the bidding for Alisson if their own goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois eventually leaves Stamford Bridge for Real Madrid.

Donald Trump ‘Snubbed’ By Prince Charles and Prince William
Prince Philip - who retired from public engagements a year ago - is also said to have snubbed the occasion. Other sources denied a snub, saying it was always planned for "Trump to meet exclusively with the queen".

Sky sources had previously indicated Liverpool had no plans to bid for Alisson this summer, but that was earlier in the window when the Premier League believed the Brazil global was going to Real Madrid.

With the World Cup over and the close of the transfer window just three weeks away, we can expect the battle for Alisson's signature to intensify because the Reds are not the only club interested in the Brazilian stopper.

The 25 year old has made over 60 appearances for Roma since joining in 2016, as well as 31 caps for Brazil.

After Liverpool's defeat to Real Madrid in the Champions League final, it emerged that Karius had suffered a concussion after being elbowed by Sergio Ramos. Simon Mignolet, who started last season as number 1 at Anfield, is also expected to move on this summer.
