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

Liverpool are ready to end their interest in Alisson, giving Real Madrid a clear run at signing the Roma goalkeeper.

Speaking after Brazil 3-0 victory over Austria on Sunday evening, Alisson wants to make a decision before the weekend otherwise it will have to wait until after the World Cup.

Liverpool had been hoping that they could swoop in before the start of the tournament in Russian Federation and confirm the arrival of a new goalkeeper, a position which is in dire need of improvement after Loris Karius' performance in the Champions League final.

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.

Sky Sports News reported in February that Liverpool were trying to sign Alisson, having initially made an enquiry for his services during the January transfer window.

"Alisson can be amongst the best in the world, alongside Courtois, De Gea and [Manuel] Neuer".

'If it's not resolved before the World Cup, then it will be discussed after it because my head will be focused only on Brazil.

"There are some possibilities and we are working on all of them, with respect to Roma".

Alisson registered 17 clean sheets for Roma in Serie A last term - the second-highest total behind only Napoli's Pepe Reina.

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

In-demand Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson hopes his club future will be sorted out before the World Cup starts later this week.
