Liverpool make £62mn bid to sign Roma's Alisson

Clearly, she saw the amusing side of having a famous namesake, sparking wild celebrations for many Reds fans online before someone pointed out the stark difference between Alisson and Alison.

Chelsea target Alisson Becker has held talks with Jurgen Klopp about a move to Anfield after Liverpool tabled an offer worth an initial £53m for the Roma goalkeeper, according to various reports today.

Jürgen Klopp offered what would be a world record fee for the 25-year-old although it falls short of the Italian club's asking price by some £4.6 million.

Chelsea are also still interested in the Brazilian, should Thibaut Courtois leave.

He has a year left on his contract and is wanted by Real Madrid.

If the deal goes through it would make Alisson the world's most expensive goalkeeper, eclipsing the €53mn paid by Juventus for Gianluigi Buffon in 2001 and the €40mn it cost Manchester City to buy Ederson from Benfica last summer.

While the common consensus is that the German manager only started following Alisson after Loris Karius dropped two clangers against Real Madrid, the reality is that Klopp has had an eye on him for several months.

Who are Liverpool most likely to sign this summer? Tentative inquiries in January were also dismissed. He was named in last season's UEFA Champions League squad of the season.

Alisson, 25, has been with Roma since joining from Brazilian side Internacional in 2016 and made 37 Serie A appearances last season.

However, according to The Times, Alisson has indicated his preferred destination is Liverpool.
