Liverpool plotting fresh bid for £60m South American dream target

Liverpool will reportedly make a fresh attempt to sign Roma goalkeeper Alisson following Loris Karius’s calamitous display in the Champions League final.

Karius’s shortcoming were brutally exposed at the NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium, as he gifted Real Madrid two goals in a 3-1 win for the 13-times European champions.

Reds manager Jurgen Klopp was already keen to bring in a new number one during the summer, and according to The Telegraph he has now told his bosses to go all out for top target Alisson.

Liverpool are understood to have previously been knocked back by Roma, who value the Brazilian over the £60m mark, but Klopp does not have any back-up transfer options in mind.

The report indicates that the Merseysiders will instead return to the negotiating table in a desperate attempt to get a deal over the line for Alisson.

Speaking earlier this month, Roma boss Eusebio Di Francesco stressed that he is “relaxed” over the 25-year-old’s future.
