According to sources in Brazil, Liverpool have made a move for Alisson.
Terra claim that we’ve made an opening €65m bid in an attempt to persuade AS Roma into selling their Brazilian stopper.
Alisson wants his future sorted out before the World Cup starts, which is in two days’ time, so perhaps LFC have gone all out to get the deal done.
No trusted sources have confirmed our bid, but that doesn’t mean it hasn’t been lodged.
We bought Fabinho without anyone knowing and it was Guinean journalists that initially broke the Naby Keita news, and French reporters who’ve been in the know about Nabil Fekir from day one.
Yesterday, Sky Sports claimed it was ‘unlikely’ that we’d sign Alisson, and in fairness, we’re more convinced by their report than Terra’s.
That being said, Liverpool do need a goalkeeper.
Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet are not good enough, it’s sad to say. Both are very nice people and it’s obvious why Jurgen Klopp has tried to give them a chance, but they’re not of elite capability, especially when you compare them to the keepers who start for our rivals.
We hope Liverpool are going all out for Alisson – but don’t think anything will happen before the World Cup.
