Liverpool FC could be set to lose out to Real Madrid in the race to sign Alisson from Roma, say reports
Liverpool FC are facing the prospect of losing out to Real Madrid in the race to sign Alisson from Roma this summer, according to reports in the British media.
The Daily Mirror is reporting that Real Madrid have joined the race for the Roma shot-stopper and could be set to make a swoop to try and sign him this summer.
The same report says that the Spanish giants are now the favourites to sign the 25-year-old goalkeeper at the end of the season.
The story says that Jurgen Klopp was “determined” to try and bring the Brazilian goalkeeper to Anfield this summer, even if it meant breaking the world transfer record for a shot-stopper.
However, Real Madrid have reportedly now made Alisson their top choice this summer, with Manchester United set to keep hold of David De Gea.
The same article says that Liverpool FC could also miss out on their second choice Bernd Leno, with Napoli reportedly ready with a £23m offer for the German who currently plays for Bayer Leverkusen.
Meanwhile, Liverpool FC bounced back to winning ways in the Premier League in style on Saturday with an impressive 5-0 victory over Watford at Anfield in the top flight.
