AS Roma insist that they have not yet received any official bids for reported Liverpool FC and Chelsea FC target Alisson Becker this summer.

Both of the Premier League clubs are thought to be keen on luring the shot-stopper to England this summer as they look to add to their options between the posts.

Liverpool FC are thought to be on the looking for a new goalkeeper this summer after Loris Karius’ Champions League final nightmare last season.

They have been heavily linked with a move for Alisson, but the move has not yet happened.

Meanwhile, Chelsea FC has also been touted as a possible destination for the Brazil international due to the speculation about Thibaut Courtois’ long-term future at the club.

Courtois’ contract is due to expire last summer and Chelsea FC will be keen to avoid losing him on a free transfer next term.

Now, speaking at a news conference over the weekend, AS Roma sporting director Monchi insisted that there had been no official offers for Alisson as of yet.

He is quoted as saying by Metro: “Now Alisson is on vacation and will return for pre-season training.

“If there were new developments, we would evaluate them, but nothing has come in.”

Liverpool FC finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last term, while Chelsea FC ended up fifth and missed out on Champions League qualification.
