Liverpool FC are set to concede defeat in their bid to sign Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson Becker from AS Roma this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that the Reds are likely to be priced out of a move to sign the Brazilian, with Jurgen Klopp apparently not willing to go anywhere near AS Roma’s asking price of £70m.

The report says that a deal to bring Alisson to Anfield now looks “highly unlikely” and the Reds are set to have to turn their attentions elsewhere.

The same story also claims that Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak is also out of Liverpool FC’s price range this summer.

It all means that Klopp and the Liverpool FC board are going to have to reassess their options when it comes to bringing a new goalkeeper to Anfield this summer.

According to the same report, Simon Mignolet will definitely leave Anfield this summer after having fallen behind Loris Karius in the pecking order at the club last season.

The same story says that Burnley’ Nick Pope and Tom Heaton have both been touted as possible targets for the Reds as they look to strengthen their goalkeeping options ahead of next term.
