Liverpool are back in the hunt for AS Roma stopper Alisson, according to reports in Italy.
Gazzetta have published an article in their print newspaper, which has been provided to us by journalist Leonardo Bertozzi, which states a bid of €60m with €5m in bonuses has been lodged.
They claim that Liverpool now lead Chelsea and Real Madrid in the pursuit of Brazil’s starting keeper, although the 25-year-old has admitted a preference to join the Spanish giants if it’s feasible.
Informação da @Gazzetta_it: Liverpool chega a 60M (+ 5M de bônus) por Alisson, aproximando-se da avaliação de 70M da Roma. Monchi nunca descartou negociá-lo pelo preço esperado. Neste momento, Reds à frente, embora o goleiro tenha se animado antes com o interesse do Real Madrid pic.twitter.com/C6Fo88R5Bk

Most Liverpool fans regard getting a new no.1 goalkeeper as an absolute priority following Loris Karius’s mistakes in the Champions League Final and the manner in which he’s started pre-season.
The German threw two in against Real Madrid, but is already under scrutiny after a stinker against Tranmere and a viral warmup gaffe v Chester.
For his own benefit as much as ours, we want him out of the firing line.
In all fairness, Alisson has never impressed us that much when we’ve watched him, but if he’s the keeper Jurgen Klopp has highlighted as his first-choice, who are we to argue?
