Roma are reported to be lining up a replacement for goalkeeper Alisson, whop has been heavily linked with Liverpool.
Jurgen Klopp’s men have been strongly linked with a move for the highly-rated stopper, with Roma expected to demand a fee in excess of £60million for the Brazilian, a figure which would smash the world transfer record for a goalkeeper.
The L’Equipe report goes on to state that Roma are open to selling Alisson and that they are preparing for his departure by monitoring Toulouse teenager Alban Lafont.
It is thought, however, that the Italian giants will have to lower their asking price to tempt clubs into making a bid for Alisson.
Loris Karius is currently Liverpool first-choice stopper and has improved throughout the course of the season after Klopp finally decided on a regular No.1.
Jack Butland was linked with Liverpool last weekend, when it was claimed the Stoke goalkeeper had become the Reds’ primary target.
Alisson has also been linked with PSG and Napoli, who are looking for a replacement for AC Milan-bound Pepe Reina.
