Liverpool have been given a boost in their attempts to sign Barcelona right back this summer after Paris Saint Germain dismissed rumours that they had agreed a deal with the Brazilian, according Carrie Brown from BEIN Sport.
Breaking. #PSG dismiss reports linking Dani Alves to the club. Agent talk.

Alves is out of contract this summer and seems destined to leave the Catalan giants after arriving in 2008 and playing a major part in a team regarded as the best in club football history.
Brendan Rodgers maybe on the lookout for a right back this summer given the club’s reluctance to offer Glen Johnson a new contract and have recently been linked with a move for Alves.
Given Barcelona’s transfer ban, the club will find it difficult to replace the 31-year-old should he decide to end his association with the club.
Despite their denial however, Liverpool can surely expect big competition from PSG for the services of Alves and will no doubt need Champions League football to be able to lure him to Merseyside.
