Liverpool table significant offer for Roma goalkeeper Alisson

Alison Becker announces Liverpool transfer but there is a twist in the tale

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

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has personally spoken to Roma goalkeeper Alisson as the Reds look to secure a deal to sign the Brazilian global.

Sky Sports claim that Chelsea are "considering re-signing Petr Cech If they sell Thibaut Courtois to Real Madrid and they are also interested in Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel".

Liverpool would have both the world's most expensive defender and the world's most expensive goalkeeper should they secure Alisson's services with their most recent bid.

Two howlers from German Loris Karius cost them dear in that final, and intensified the need for a top-quality stopper as Klopp looks to mount a title challenge.
