Liverpool 'Unlikely' to Sign Roma Target Despite Holding Talks With Player's Agent

The same report claims that Alisson would cost Liverpool €70 million (£61.6 million) - an extortionate amount for a goalkeeper, but a figure that could prove to be priceless if the Merseysiders go on to win the league title for the first time since 1990.

He told UOL Esporte: "I think everything will be resolved before the start of the World Cup, that's what I want".

Alisson is in a rich vein of form for the Lupas and has bailed them out on multiple occasions as the team enjoyed an awesome run to the semi-finals of the Champions League, producing a very impressive result against a Barcelona side when they came back from 4-1 down to knock them out at the Stadio Olimpico.

Liverpool are unlikely to make an approach to sign Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson from Roma, Sky Sports News understands.

After Brazil's friendly victory against Austria, Alisson Becker talked about his future and the rumors of the transfer market.

The 1994 World Cup victor, who also spent time in Italy with Parma during his playing career, told Tele Radio Stereo: "Alisson is very happy at Roma and the rumours of a transfer are just rumours".

"To be honest, I left everything in the hands of my agents".

"I don't really like making lists of who is the best, but as far as I'm concerned, he's one of the best in the world, together with [Manuel] Neuer, who I've always liked and is getting back now, and [David] De Gea, [Thibaut] Courtois".

Liverpool have also made an approach to Atletico Madrid but were put off by his asking price - also £80m.
