The Reds are believed to have submitted a world-record bid for the Brazilian global as they look to finally remedy their long-standing goalkeeping woes.

According to several well connected sources this afternoon, Liverpool are ready to obliterate the transfer record for a goalkeeper.

Courtois could move to Real Madrid and new Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is a firm fan of Alisson.

Liverpool have reportedly made a bid in excess of £60 million for Roma goalkeeper Alisson.

German keeper Loris Karius made two blunders in the game that cost the Reds the game.

The Brazilian's confidence on the ball and pin point accuracy make him one of the best keepers in world football at building play from the back.

Roma's European dream died as they were beaten by Liverpool in the last four of the competition and it appears Klopp is now eyeing up a move to bring 25-year-old keeper Alisson to Anfield.

Liverpool's route to signing Alisson Becker might be unobstructed if reports are to be believed that Chelsea are targeting Petr Cech as a replacement for Thibaut Courtois if he leaves.

Liverpool FC signed Brazil worldwide Fabinho in a £40m deal from Ligue 1 side AS Monaco at the start of the summer transfer window.

The Roma stopper had a distribution accuracy of 83% per 90 last term, a clear upgrade on both Karius (72%) and Simon Mignolet (75%) respectively - and he even registered an assist in Serie A last term.
