SkySports confirm: Liverpool trying to sign Roma goalkeeper Alisson
Liverpool want to sign Roma goalkeeper Alisson ahead of the summer, Sky Sports News reports.
Liverpool made an inquiry into signing the 26-year-old during the January transfer window and the club hope to persuade Roma to sell the player in the coming weeks.
However, it is understood Roma believe Alisson is one of the best in his position in Europe and value him at £62million (€70m) - potentially a world-record price for a goalkeeper.
It was also reported in Italy last week that they have been trying to get him to sign a new contract, with the anticipation of more interest from some of Europe's top clubs in the summer.
Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are just two top teams expected to be in the market for goalkeepers, so Liverpool are attempting to beat potential competition.
