Liverpool make £62m bid for Roma goalkeeper Alisson

With the World Cup over and the close of the transfer window just three weeks away, we can expect the battle for Alisson's signature to intensify because the Reds are not the only club interested in the Brazilian stopper.

Liverpool fans have been encouraged by Alisson himself and the player's agent that a deal taking him to Anfield is still very much possible after their social media activity was scrutinised.

Liverpool and Roma are now in talks with Brazil No. 1 Alisson Becker - that's two Ss, not one - over a move to Merseyside in the current window.

"You have to ask a question or two of the Liverpool manager on this issue".

They had believed earlier in the summer that Alisson was heading to Real but now it appears the Spanish giants are only keen on Courtois.

The Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp, has been guarded about his plans for a new goalkeeper after Loris Karius' disappointing end to the season. He was named in last season's UEFA Champions League squad of the season.

However, a quick glance at the profile photo made it clear this tweet was definitely *not* sent by the Roma goalkeeper.

In Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, the Reds have the best attacking trio in the league, and could soon boast the best midfield if summer signings Fabinho and Naby Keita hit the ground running next season.

Liverpool have tried and tested Mignolet and Karius and both have failed to take on the shot-stopping role to great effect.
