Liverpool Submit World-record £62m Bid For AS Roma Goalie Allison

Liverpool have submitted a world-record £62m bid for AS Roma goalkeeper Allison.

The Reds were in talks were in talks with the Serie A Club last night as they look to secure the Brazilian's signature.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp sees Allison as the right replacement for Goalkeeper Loris Karius after his errors in the Champions League final against Real Madrid.

Allison is keen to join the Premier League but AS Roma are holding out for a fee closer to £67m.

The transfer would smash the world-record fee for a Goalkeeper set by Manchester City when they signed Ederson from Benfica for £34.7m last summer.

Liverpool first showed interest back in January but were shocking by the fee AS Roma demanded for the Brazil international.

But they have now decided to sign him despite his World Cup campaign for Brazil not being too impressive in Russia.

Liverpool are wary that Real Madrid are closing in on Chelsea keeper Thibaut Courtois which could mean the Londoners enter the race for Alisson.

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.

However, if they fail to convince Chelsea to sell the Belgium No. 1 then they could refocus their attentions back on Alisson which would leave Liverpool in a bidding war.

The Reds are hoping for swift negotiations to avoid any such auction but it appears they may have to raise their bid higher to get their man.

Klopp insisted he was prepared to back Karius despite the keeper handing two goals to Real in the Spanish side’s 3-1 Champions League final win back in May.

Karius found out two weeks later that he had suffered concussion in the game following a collision with Sergio Ramos.

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

But Klopp has wanted to bring Alisson to Anfield long before his current keeper’s reputation went to tatters and now he is closing in on his man.
