      Alisson Becker (AS Roma)

      Liverpool have 'opening offer for Roma goalkeeper Alisson Becker rejected'
      Roma have reportedly rejected a bid from Liverpool for goalkeeper Alisson Becker.

      Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp is keen to sign a new keeper either this month or in the summer, having lost faith in both Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius.

      The pair have both consistently made errors this season and have struggled to stamp their authority on the No 1 position.According to reports in Italy, Klopp has identified Roma keeper Alisson as a key target and has backed up his interest in him with an offer. However, Il Tempo have claimed that undisclosed offer for the Brazil No 1 has been rebuffed by the Serie A side.

      Liverpool have already been told to pay £44million if they want to sign Alisson so it is believed their opening gambit would have below that figure.

      Roma are already fighting to keep hold of two of their stars this window with Edin Dzeko and Emerson Palmieri seemingly set for a move to Chelsea, and do not want to lose another key player amid a battle for Champions League qualification.

      Allison however, is thought to be open to a switch to the Premier League, but remained particularly coy on the matter when quizzed by Sky Italia recently.   

      'I am happy in Rome,' he said. 'It's always a pleasure to feel that lots of people are monitoring you but my head is focused on Roma. I leave my future in the hands of God.

      'In June, maybe we will speak about it again but for now I am concentrated on Roma.

      'Together with my team-mates, we have done a great job to not allow the loss of [Wojciech] Szczesny to be felt by the fans. 

      'I have worked very hard and want to continue along that track.'

      Or a sign of click bait, nothing quite stirs web site hits and the hitting the F5 button quite like linking LFC to a player in a position that were struggling 😂

      With Dzeko to chelsea off now, Roma still need to sell to comply with FFP

      So maybe still a chance.

      But if karius f***s up tonight, the clamour to get this done tomorrow will be huge

      Karius made 2 decent performances and we stopped pursuing new goalkeeper....Can't believe really.

      But i'm sure if Karius won't upgrade his performances till the end of season, we will sign new goalkeeper.

      Lets hope Karius has a couple of really sh*t performances in the league, once we have top 4 sown up, perhaps that will convince them to get a new GK.

      Buy Alisson.
      Sell Mignolet. (ship him on a plane to anywhere)

      It's not a complicated window LFC.
      Especially if he wants to come and his representatives have been in touch.

      Mind you for a year I though the VVD transfer was the figment of our imagination so...

      I just have a sneaky feeling we'll  be back for him in the summer. I suspect we had Ms Reddy/Pearce put it out there that we are not interested in order not to unsettle our keeper who has been in fine form.

      I hope you're right, because it's disappointing to hear we're not interested anymore. However, it's also very strange that we would publicly "announce" that (via trusted journalists close to the club) right now, with the season ongoing, for there's no real reason to do so.

      Given we've already issued public apologies and then ended up with the player we wanted, I won't take this as a sign there's no chance we're signing him. Or maybe that's just wishful thinking. Haha

      If Karius keeps going like he has of late, no reason to splash out that much on this guy. But if he struggles, I've no doubt keeper will be a priority, whether it's him or someone else.

      I hope Karius continues however.

      ala Father Ted and Bishop Brennan

      Jürgen Klopp: Right, now I think it would be best for you to continue your career as goalkeeper-cum-slapstick comedian outside my jurisdiction! Now Simon, I thought you might like to go to America. What part, do you reckon?

      Simon Mignolet: Um...Las Vegas?

      Jürgen: Oh I'm sorry Simon, I meant SOUTH America! Ah, there's a lovely little island, off the coast of Surinam and... ha! ha!... they have a couple of tribes there, you're going to love this, and they have been knocking the sh*t out of each other since 1907! And we have never found the right man to bring them together in the spirit of Christian harmony, but I think that you, Simon, are the man!

      Simon Mignolet:...um...thanks very much.

      Jürgen: No need to thank me...oh by the way do you know how to make arrows?

      Only problem come summer time is it gives other clubs like PSG to get their sh*t in order before making a bid. I really want Alisson from the little I've seen but I would completely understand if Jürgen doesn't want to spend 60m+ on a goalkeeper. World record fees for a CB & GK in successive windows? The world would lose it's sh*t.
