Liverpool Make Official Bid For Roma Keeper Alisson

Roma's Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson looks on before the Italian Serie A football match AS Roma vs Juventus at the Olympic stadium

Giallorossi leadership consider Donnarumma as their top target to replace the Brazilian, and the 19-year-old's agent, Mino Raiola, is familiar with the club having recently orchestrated Justin Kluivert's transfer to Rome.

Sky in Italy are reporting Liverpool have made an offer for Roma goalkeeper Alisson Becker.

Clearly, she saw the amusing side of having a famous namesake, sparking wild celebrations for many Reds fans online before someone pointed out the stark difference between Alisson and Alison. Real Madrid, another possible suitor, have yet to make contact with Roma.

Chelsea are also still interested in the Brazilian, should Thibaut Courtois leave. To get the latest soccer news, text "SPORTS" to 22840.

They hope that a scramble between heavyweight outfits could be sparked once one official bid is tabled, with the likes of Real Madrid and Chelsea also said to be in the hunt for Alisson's signature.

Liverpool had been deterred from pursing that interest at the start of the summer by Roma's asking price.

Liverpool's offer is believed to consist of £53m up front with another £9m in add-ons for the 25-year-old.

Liverpool are confident of securing agreement and solving the biggest headache Klopp has in his team. So many observers have suggested Karius was not up to the job of being first choice keeper for the club and that decision came back to bite him.

This particular transaction, if it happens, would be record setting as Roma shot stopper Alisson Becker could become the world's most expensive goalkeeper.

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