Anfield side back in the hunt to sign Roma keeper.
Reds’ Doni move back on
Roma keeper’s future to become clearer next week
Alexander Doni’s proposed move to Liverpool could yet be resurrected, according to the player’s agent.
Doni’s representative, Ovidio Colucci, has revealed Liverpool’s interest persist, and suggests a decision on his client’s future could become clearer next week.
“At the moment there’s no news on the situation of Doni,” he told Calciomercato.it.
“The hypothesis of Liverpool is still possible. Towards the middle of next week we will know more, since I scheduled a meeting with the leadership of Roma.”

By all accounts the experienced Roma keeper could be on his way to Anfield next week having previously turned down an offer from the Merseyside club after the Serie A side accepted a deal with Liverpool. The 31 year old would offer a stern test for number one starter Pepe Reina and would be a more suitable second choice than Aussie Brad Jones.
Doni has completed six seasons at the Stadio Olimpico but could be ready for a new challenge and Kenny Dalglish clearly rates the Sao Paulo born custodian who appears keen on a move to the Premier League. Liverpool are looking to strengthen their squad ahead of an assault on the top four and a move to offer real competition to Spanish international Reina makes a great deal of sense.
Liverpool have of course already snapped up Jordan Henderson and Dalglish and director of football Damien Comolli reportedly have their heart set on a number of other additions but must first look to trim some of the deadwood from the Anfield squad.
The likes of Milan Jovanovic, Joe Cole, Christian Poulsen, Paul Konchesky and David N’Gog are all apparently up for sale for the right price.
