Liverpool table significant offer for Roma goalkeeper Alisson

It's been known for months that Liverpool's top target is Roma 'keeper Alisson Becker but it had been suggested that the asking price for the Brazil global would make a deal unlikely.

Liverpool have submitted a £62 million offer to Roma for the Brazil worldwide as the club step up their search for a new first-choice goalkeeper ahead of the new season.

James Pearce of the Liverpool Echo is reporting that the Anfield club have finally made their move as they look to find a replacement for error-prone Loris Karius.

The German keeper then dropped another clanger in a pre-season game against Tranmere last week which further intensified speculation over his position.

Today, Liverpool are closing-in on Chelsea target Alisson Becker...

Alisson is the number one choice for the Brazil National team and played in every game for Brazil at the World Cup in Russian Federation.

The newspaper says that Chelsea - who have also been strongly linked with Alisson recently - are reluctant to pay that kind of money for the goalkeeper but Liverpool's offer will force them to show their hand.

Klopp was already considering a new goalkeeper before that poor performance.

Either figure would be a world record transfer fee for a goalkeeper.

Real may still be a player in the deal as they are reportedly interested in Chelsea 'keeper Thibaut Courtois, which would mean Chelsea would be in the market for a new stopper.

After making such a statement with their offer, it is unlikely Liverpool will be put off by the asking price.
