Insider warns Liverpool FC about Real Madrid interest in 25-year-old
Sky Sports News reporter Kaveh Solhekol warns Liverpool FC that Real Madrid will be interested in Alisson Becker
Liverpool FC are interested in a deal to sign AS Roma goalkeeper Alisson but Real Madrid could scupper their plans, Kaveh Solhekol has claimed.
The Reds lost 3-1 to La Liga giants Real Madrid in the Champions League final in Kiev after Loris Karius made two huge mistakes.
The Liverpool FC goalkeeper inadvertently passed the ball to Karim Benzema to allow the France international to break the deadock.
Karius parried Gareth Bale’s long-range shot into his own net to seal Real Madrid’s 13th Champions League crown.
The Merseyside outfit have been linked with a move to sign the Brazil international from AS Roma to improve their goalkeeping options.
Alisson is rated as one of the best goalkeepers in Europe but Liverpool FC could face competition from Champions League winners Real Madrid.
Sky Sports News reporter Solhekol believes the Reds are looking at a potential deal to sign Alisson this summer.
“Liverpool are interested in signing him,” Solhekol told the Transfer Talk podcast.
“They are looking to sign a goalkeeper this summer… He is very highly regarded.
He added: “The only problem Liverpool might have is if Real Madrid come in for him.”
Liverpool FC haven’t won the Premier League title but finished in second spot in 2002, 2009 and 2014.
The Reds secured a top-four finish thanks to a 4-0 win over Brighton and Hove Albion last month.
