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.
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
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.
