Liverpool FC have been warned that AS Roma are set to demand a premium price for Alisson Becker, reporter Paolo Baldini has claimed.

The Reds are thought to be in the market to sign a top goalkeeper in the summer transfer window following the Champions League final.

Karius has failed to convince since moving to Liverpool FC from German side Mainz 05 in the 2016 summer transfer window.

Jurgen Klopp stuck with compatriot Karius in the second half of the current campaign ahead of his understudy Simon Mignolet.

Liverpool FC have been linked with a potential big money swoop to sign AS Roma goalkeeper Becker in the current transfer window.

The Reds could have to upwards of £90m to sign the Brazil international to secure what many consider to be the top goalkeeper in Europe.

Italian reporter Baldini warned the Reds that AS Roma will look for a huge transfer fee for the Brazilian shot stopper.

“AS Roma are serious for asking for a lot of money,” Baldini told ESPN FC.

“He is under contract until 2022. It was take a big, big sum to get him.”

Liverpool FC finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last season ensure their continued participation in the Champions League.
