Liverpool have identified Alisson alternative from Ligue 1

AS Roma seem to be preparing for life without their exceptional no.1 Alisson, who as we know, is a Liverpool target.

L’Equipe, translated by Sport Witness, say that 19-year-old Toulouse starter Alban Lafont is being targeted by the Italian giants.

The French stopper has emerged as one of the most promising young keepers in Europe this term and could replace Alisson for the Serie A side.

The fact Roma are already looking to buy a goalkeeper suggests they don’t believe Alisson will be at the Stadio Olimpico next season.

L’Equipe state we’re frontrunners for the 25-year-old’s signature, although negotiating with Roma won’t be easy after we acquired Mo Salah for a paltry £37m in 2017.

For that reason, they’ll likely slap an extreme price-tag on Alisson’s shoulders.

We’ve also been linked with Gianluigi Donnarumma, but find this harder to believe because his agent is Mino Raiola, an unsavoury man who has a terrible relationship with Jurgen Klopp.

Alisson is the more experienced, and in our opinion, better keeper, anyway.

Loris Karius is improved, but the chance to sign a truly world-class goalie shouldn’t be turned down.
