Liverpool make £62 million bid for Alisson, talks ongoing

Liverpool have made an initial £62 million bid for Roma goalkeeper Alisson, with the two clubs in negotiations over a world-record deal.

The Reds were touted with a big-money offer by a host of Italian journalists earlier on Tuesday and this has now been corroborated by all the Liverpool-based media.

It’s reported that the bid is worth £62 million – made up of £53m up front, with £9m of add ons.

That equates to around €70 million – but Roma are said to want €75 million, meaning Liverpool will need to negotiate a deal or add another £4.4 million to their bid.

  • Liverpool have offered €70 million (£62m)
  • Roma seeking €75 million but willing to negotiate
  • Alisson open to prospect of joining the Reds
  • Goalkeeper expected to have spoken to Klopp ahead of move

Alisson has attracted interest from both Chelsea and Real Madrid this summer, but the latter are more likely to sign Thibaut Courtois, who is expected to leave Stamford Bridge.

Furthermore, given Liverpool are in the Champions League and the Blues only qualified for the Europa League with last season’s fifth-placed finish, Klopp’s side have the upper hand.

If a deal goes through, the Reds would have paid world-record fees for both a goalkeeper and a defender.

This would be a significant statement of intent, particularly given they have been two of the club’s biggest problem areas in recent seasons.
