Liverpool make €70m bid for Roma's Alisson

Alisson Becker Gianluigi Donnarumma

If that's not definitive evidence that Alisson is DEFINITELY going to join Liverpool imminently, then I don't know what is.

Roma are willing to let goalkeeper Alisson leave the club this summer, but want to have a deal in place for Milan's Gianluigi Donnarumma before allowing the Brazilian to depart.

Liverpool have denied making a 70m euro bid for Roma goalkeeper Alisson Becker after reports in Italy suggested the two clubs were in talks.

It's reported that the Merseysiders have stepped up their pursuit of the 25-year-old after rumours of their interest swirled throughout the transfer window.

Alisson started every game for Brazil at the World Cup, which ended at the quarter-final stage for the Samba Boys following a 2-1 loss against Belgium.

Sky sources have previously told us that Liverpool have no plans to bid for Alisson this summer.

The Brazil international's agent, Ze Maria Neis, got Liverpool fans excited earlier today when he "liked" an Instagram post of Alisson photoshopped into a Reds kit.

Liverpool are on the lookout for a new goalkeeper this summer with Loris Karius's well-documented Champions League final errors seemingly prompting boss Jurgen Klopp to finally seek a change.

Chelsea, who could be set to lose Thibaut Courtois to Real Madrid, with the Belgian 'stopper a target for the Champions League holders.

Chelsea are also interested in the Brazilian number one, but Liverpool will hope their long-term pursuit gives them the advantage.
