Transfer: Liverpool favourite to sign goalkeeper Alison Becker ahead of Chelsea

Paris Saint-Germain's French goalkeeper Alphonse Areola leaps to catch the ball during the French Ligue 1 football match between Bordeaux and Paris Saint Germain at The Mamut

Roma are believed to be studying the offer, which falls just short of the 75 million euros they are asking for but Liverpool hope it will be tempting enough for them to accept. The respective valuations has increased confidence at Liverpool that the 25-year-old will be their new first choice goalkeeper next season.

Monchi, the Director of Sport at the Italian outfit, said recently that Roma don't need to sell to balance the books but such a big offer, a world receord fee for a goalkeeper, would be a windfall which any club would find hard to resist.

Liverpool fans are so desperate for Brazilian custodian Alisson Becker to sign for their beloved Reds, that they started celebrating when Alison Becker confirmed the news of the transfer on Twitter.

However, according to fresh claims from the Mirror, Chelsea are willing to gazump Liverpool in their pursuit of Alisson and are prepared to spend a huge sum of £70 million on the Roma star.

German keeper Loris Karius made two blunders in the game that cost the Reds the game.

The boys have been advised against giving media interviews, which experts say could trigger a post-traumatic reaction. The young "Wild Boars" and their 25-year-old football coach Ekkapol Chantawong wandered into the cave on 23 June.

Another Brazil global in Liverpool's sights is midfielder Bernard, who is also wanted by Arsenal and Everton.

The offer is a sign of Liverpool's ambition and the offer will smash the record for the world's most expensive goalkeeper.

Alisson has always been Jurgen Klopp's preferred solution for the problematic goalkeeping position at Liverpool, with the manager's interest pre-dating Loris Karius' calamitous performance against Real Madrid in the Champions League final.

The 25 year old has made over 60 appearances for Roma since joining in 2016, as well as 31 caps for Brazil.
