Liverpool suffer transfer blow, Euro giants join race for crucial Klopp solution

Roma star Alisson has established himself as one of the top goalkeepers in Europe, but Liverpool’s reported pursuit may have just got a little tricky.

The 25-year-old has made 28 appearances in all competitions so far this season, and has conceded just 23 goals while keeping 12 clean sheets. In addition, he’s pulled off a number of stunning saves, including the exceptional double stop seen in the video below against Sampdoria last week.

As per the Metro, Liverpool have had an interest in the Brazilian international and could try to prise him away from the Italian capital.

However, Mundo Deportivo report that Real Madrid have also been alerted by his form for the Serie A giants and could look to him to solve their own problem between the posts.

Seemingly no longer content with Keylor Navas, Los Blancos could move to sign Alisson as he has been added to a long list of candidates, as per the report.

Similarly though, it’s a position that Liverpool are desperate to address with Jurgen Klopp failing to settle on either Simon Mignolet or Loris Karius as his first choice goalkeeper, with both having stints in the starting line-up.

Both individuals have made costly errors throughout their respective spells in the side, and although Liverpool completed a sensible move to bolster their backline with Virgil van Dijk, signing a new goalkeeper who can consistently perform could be a pivotal piece added to the puzzle to turn them into genuine contenders moving forward.

Having only signed him in 2016, Roma will undoubtedly want to keep hold of Alisson such has been his impact since arriving from Internacional, but it is seemingly set to become increasingly difficult if Real Madrid and Liverpool are knocking on the door.
