Liverpool have “no chance” of prising Alisson from Champions League semi-final opponents Roma, according to the Italian club’s president.
Liverpool have been linked with Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson for much of the season, even with the improved performances of Loris Karius.
The Roma keeper will have the best possible chance to make a good impression in the two-legged Champions League semi-final when Liverpool take on Roma for a place in the final.
But James Pallotta insists Roma have no plans to cash in on one of their biggest assets.
“We have no intention of selling him. No chance,” Pallotta told Sky Sport Italia.
“When we signed him, I thought he was a great goalkeeper and I still think so, so we won’t sell him.
“Why shouldn’t we think about the final? Liverpool are a strong team but we can play well, too.
“We did well in Barcelona and the score did not reflect what we saw on the pitch in the first leg. We took them by surprise in the second, thanks to the coach.”
