Chelsea looking to pip Liverpool to Alisson signing

Real may still be a player in the deal as they are reportedly interested in Chelsea 'keeper Thibaut Courtois, which would mean Chelsea would be in the market for a new stopper.

That has left the two English clubs to fight it out for Alisson, but in today's new development, Liverpool have put their money where their mouth is and that gives them a significant advantage in their bid to land the keeper.

Liverpool have made a 70million euros (£62m) bid for Roma goalkeeper Alisson, according to reports.

Liverpool have been heavily linked with Roma goalkeeper Alisson.

Currently, the largest fee ever paid for a goalkeeper is the €52 million that Gianluigi Buffon cost Juventus in 2001 so wherever Alisson goes, he will be responsible for the smashing of that record.

Jurgen Klopp's side beat Roma in the Champions League semi-finals last term before losing 3-1 to Real Madrid in the decider.

The goalkeeping curse of Loris Karius extended into the World Cup, with howlers from both David de Gea in the group stages and Hugo Lloris in the World Cup final also coming under the spotlight.

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

Liverpool would be making big strides with the capture of Alisson, and at 25 years of age he could provide the Merseyside club with stability between the sticks for the best part of the next decade.
