Liverpool table significant offer for Roma goalkeeper Alisson

Chelsea are said to be keen on Alisson too and his agent has reportedly held talks with them, but Liverpool are the only club to have made an official offer to Roma.

Roma are rubbing their hands at the prospect of a bidding war for their prized keeper, who they value at 75 million euros - a price which Real Madrid, who have also been tracking the player, withdrew their interest. Jurgen Klopp encourages his keeper to swiftly move on possession, and Alisson has the ability to add an extra dimension to Liverpool's swift attacking movement with his impressive mid to long range deliveries.

Roma's European dream died as they were beaten by Liverpool in the last four of the competition and it appears Klopp is now eyeing up a move to bring 25-year-old keeper Alisson to Anfield.

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

Liverpool FC have been linked with a number of goalkeepers this summer after Loris Karius' Champions League final nightmare back in May. The Blues, who may allow Thibaut Courtois to join Real Madrid, are understood to be keen on the Brazil global.

On Monday evening, hours after the news of Liverpool's bid was reported, Twitter user "Alison Becker" posted a tweet which got many supporters excited.

"Excited to announce that I will be joining Liverpool as a goalkeeper!" they tweeted.

The Roma goalkeeper has attracted a lot of attention this summer.

Even the Reds' faithful held their hands up and admitted this was pretty amusing...
