Liverpool transfer rumours: Jasper Cillessen, Nabil Fekir, Manuel Lanzini and Alisson

However, according to The Mirror, Liverpool aren't optimistic about their chances of signing the goalkeeper.

According to David Maddock of the Daily Mirror, the Reds are not prepared to part with the asking price Roma are demanding for the Brazil worldwide, which is said to be around the £70 million mark.

The German's blunders cost Liverpool dear in their Champions League final defeat at the hands of Real Madrid, who have also been linked with an approach for Alisson.

Liverpool fans have been alarmed to read Liverpool may now look to Burnley duo Tom Heaton and Nick Pope, but Klopp is refusing to panic so early in the window.


However, a report in The Telegraph claims there is a good reason why neither Liverpool nor Lyon have given a reason for the transfer breaking down.

That last piece of the club's new midfield still needs filling though, and with news of a move for West Ham's Manuel Lanzini having been scuppered by an injury sustained on global duty, the shortlist narrows by the day.

Liverpool have managed to complete a deal for Fabinho from AS Monaco with Naby Keita also due to join from RB Leipzig on July 1. Neither Roma or the player himself have given any indication that they are looking for the keeper to leave, and the Serie A outfit are desperate not to sell cheaply following the success of £35m Mohamed Salah on Merseyside. After all, Alisson is only 25, proven at the highest level and is the type of goalkeeper-especially given his excellent distribution-who would fit into a Klopp side well at Anfield.
