Liverpool Make Record Breaking £62m Bid for Alisson Becker

Liverpool Make Record Breaking £62m Bid for Alisson Becker

Roma are believed to be studying the offer, which falls just short of the 75 million euros they are asking for but Liverpool hope it will be tempting enough for them to accept.

Chelsea are aware that Thibaut Courtois could leave this summer after holding off extending his contract at Stamford Bridge. Real Madrid, another possible suitor, have yet to make contact with Roma.

Alongside Virgil van Dijk as the world's most expensive defender, Alisson will become the costliest goalkeeper in footballing history - a real statement of intent from a side looking to win silverware together for the first time.

The Reds are desperate to add a reliable goalkeeper to their ranks after a disastrous end to the season for current No.1, Loris Karius.

On Tuesday, reports emerged that a huge €70 million (£62,2m) bid had been submitted to Roma to sign Alisson Becker.

Sevilla want £31m for Tottenham and Arsenal target Steven N'Zonzi
Elsewhere, the Gunners look set to miss out on the signing of Sevilla midfielder Ever Banega , reports Marca . He has been likened to N'Golo Kante and should fit in with Emery's hard-pressing style of play.

Who are Liverpool most likely to sign this summer?

His gaffes in the 2018 UEFA Champions League Final were still fresh in memory when he committed a blunder against Tranmere Rovers, prompting calls for Klopp to look in the transfer market for solid options.

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 25 year old has made over 60 appearances for Roma since joining in 2016, as well as 31 caps for Brazil. The Liverpool manager has also considered Danny Ward during pre-season but is edging closer to addressing a long-standing issue at Anfield with the bid for Alisson.
