After Saturday’s Champions League Final, it’s not surprising that the Alisson to Liverpool rumors have begun boiling again. Current Reds keeper Loris Karius had a disastrous performance that for all intents and purposes killed any chance for his side to upset defending Champions Real Madrid. Thanks to his nightmare performance, the media’s attention has again turned back to Roma’s Alisson as the ideal candidate to replace the shamed Karius.
According to reports out of England, Roma plan on holding for at least 90 million Euros for Alisson before they even consider selling him. The Guardian continues by saying that Liverpool has yet to make an official advance for the Brazilian but have contacted Roma as to his availability. However, it is expected that the Reds will continue to ring Roma’s phones.
Meanwhile, Roma have maintained their desire to hang on to Alisson. His current deal runs until 2021 and pays him 1.5 million Euros per season and the club plans on offering him an extension with a considerable wage raise. Roma hope that this will help them keep him in the Italian capital for another season.
It’ll be interesting to see if Liverpool or any other club (Real Madrid) decide to come in with an offer anywhere near the fees being floated by the media. If Roma are serious about keeping Alisson, it’ll also be a test of the club’s will to turn down a potential record transfer fee for a keeper. One thing’s for sure, with the mercato in it’s early stages expect the Alisson-Liverpool link to linger all summer.
