AS Roma tell Liverpool FC to forget about signing top 25-year-old goalkeeper
AS Roma are adamant that Liverpool FC target Alisson won't be sold in the summer transfer window
AS Roma chief executive Umberto Gandini has told Liverpool FC and Real Madrid to forget about signing Alisson.
The Brazil international has impressed in the AS Roma team since he established himself as the club’s first-choice goalkeeper last term.
Alisson has helped AS Roma to reach the Champions League quarter-finals following a 1-0 win over Shakhtar Donetsk in the Italian capital last week.
The South American shot stopper has been linked with a potential move to Liverpool FC over the past few months as Jurgen Klopp looks to improve his goalkeeping options.
La Liga giants Real Madrid have also been credited with an interest in Alisson, despite previously being linked with a move to sign David De Gea or Thibaut Courtois.
However, AS Roma chief Gandini is adamant that the Italian club aren’t interested in selling Alisson at the end of the season.
“We are not thinking about selling our best players,” Gandini told Radio Rai.
“Right now we are living a very important phase of our season. This club have always changed many players to improve.
“The transfer window is dynamic, there big teams that change their identity to improve and not for economical reasons.”
Alisson has made 29 appearances in Serie A this season, while he has also featured in all eight of their Champions League fixtures this term.
Liverpool FC number one Loris Karius has impressed between the sticks in recent months since Klopp promoted the German to first-choice.
The Reds haven’t had a world class goalkeeper since Pepe Reina was allowed to leave in 2013.
