Roma respond to Liverpool’s offer for keeper Alisson

Roma are holding out for £67million for goalkeeper Alisson after Liverpool opened the bidding for the Brazil No.1.

The Anfield club lodged an offer of £62m on Tuesday as they bid to replace the error-prone Loris Karius.

But the Serie A side want to squeeze another £5m out of the Premier League side, according to reports in Italy.

Liverpool are also set to face competition from Chelsea who want to sign Alisson as a replacement for Thibaut Courtois.

The Belgian keeper looks set to join Real Madrid having failed to extend his contract at Stamford Bridge.

Alisson, 25, has been with Roma since joining from Brazilian side Internacional in 2016 and made 37 Serie A appearances last season.

He played in all five of Brazil’s games at this summer’s World Cup, keeping three clean sheets.

Liverpool goalkeeper Karius was back in the spotlight last week after a 3-2 friendly win against Tranmere at Prenton Park saw him spill a free-kick which allowed the hosts to score.

Karius was at fault for two of Real Madrid’s three goals when they beat Liverpool 3-1 in May’s Champions League final, after which it was revealed the 25-year-old German was suffering from concussion.

Where will Alisson be playing next season?
