Liverpool make £62m bid for Roma goalkeeper Alisson

Liverpool have opened talks with Roma over the possible world record signing of the Brazil goalkeeper Alisson, with an initial offer of €70mn (£62.2m) including €10mn of add-ons being lodged with the Serie A club.

Real Madrid, Chelsea and of course, Liverpool are in the race to sign the South American custodian. But before you react to the news or announce it to the world, go back to the first word of the article...

Roma are rubbing their hands at the prospect of a bidding war for their prized keeper, who they value at 75 million euros - a price which Real Madrid, who have also been tracking the player, withdrew their interest.

The Reds have slapped a €70m bid in for the Brazilian shot-stopper and are hoping to wrap up a deal to take him to Anfield from Roma this summer.

They want in excess of £66m for his signature.

Liverpool are confident of securing agreement and solving the biggest headache Klopp has in his team. Karius is looking unlikely to keep his place with Liverpool.

The Reds are believed to have submitted a world-record bid for the Brazilian global as they look to finally remedy their long-standing goalkeeping woes. The respective valuations has increased confidence at Liverpool that the 25-year-old will be their new first choice goalkeeper next season.

But the deal is far from done with Chelsea ready to pull the trigger on their approach.
