Liverpool Have Launched £57m Official Bid For 25-Year-Old Dream Target

Liverpool have reportedly made an official £57m bid for AS Roma goalkeeper Alisson Becker in an effort to push through a transfer before the World Cup.

The Brazil international yesterday revealed that he wants his future sorted this week amid reported interest from the likes of Liverpool, Real Madrid, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain.

The Reds were thought to have decided against bidding for Alisson due to Roma’s asking price of around £80m, but Brazilian outlet Terra reports that they have now made their move.

Liverpool’s reported offer of £57m is some way below Roma’s valuation, though, and the Italian club are eager to keep the 25-year-old at the Stadio Olimpico.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are in the market for a new shot-stopper this summer and were understood to have identified Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak as their number one target, only to decide that the Slovenia international is unattainable.
