No offers for 'happy' Alisson - Roma chief Monchi

20 March 2018

Liverpool appear to have suffered a blow in their pursuit of Roma goalkeeper Alisson Becker, after the Italian club's CEO Umberto Gandini insisted that they have no interest in selling their best players, as quoted by Italian media outlet Calcio Mercato.

"We never spoke with Liverpool about him".

Alisson is set to be Brazil's number one at the World Cup in June, having featured in 16 of their 18 qualifiers as they topped the CONMEBOL standings.

Another problem coming Liverpool's way is the transfer fee that Alisson would command - and that fee got stumped up when Roma qualified for the Champions League quarter finals.

"Will he sign a new contract?" Now Alisson only thinks in present time.

That's what Corriere dello Sport are reporting on Tuesday, claiming the La Liga giants are ready to trump Jürgen Klopp's club to the Brazilian shot stopper with a €60m bid.

Alisson has been in superb form for the Giallorossi since taking over from Polish global Wojciech Szczesny and he has managed 13 clean sheets in 29 Serie A games.

Roma have received no offers for in-demand keeper Alisson, says director of football Monchi.

"I speak to Alisson every week, he is happy and wants to do important things here at Roma".

"We don't know of any offer and certainly haven't received any proposal".
