Liverpool ready to sacrifice 29-year-old star to sign 6 ft 3 Brazilian from Serie A

Roma goalkeeper Alisson has emerged as a target for Liverpool this January, according to reports in Italy.

Alisson, 25, has made 40 appearances for Roma since joining the club back in 2016 and has established himself as first-choice shot-stopper at Stadio Olimpico following Wojciech Szczesny’s departure.

The Brazilian’s performances in Serie A have put Paris Saint-Germain on red alert, but it’s understood Jurgen Klopp is also expressing a strong interest.

La Gazzetta dello Sport suggests Liverpool could ‘sacrifice’ Simon Mignolet in order to get a deal over the line for Alisson. Both Mignolet and Loris Karius continue to struggle between the sticks at Anfield and a number of ‘keepers have been linked with moves to Merseyside.

PSG misfit Kevin Trapp hinted back in November that he would be keen on working under Klopp at Liverpool. ‘It’s an amazing club with a great tradition,’ Trapp told Sport1.

‘And of course, I’m a fan of the Premier League. The Reds are not without interest, they have already won many titles and Jurgen Klopp is of course a very good coach.

‘I have not thought of possible clubs yet. However, many things can happen in football. Even if I’m not the most patient person, I have to stay cool.’
