Liverpool have encountered another set back in their race to sign Roma goalie Alisson who has been in sterling form for the Serie A giants throughout this season.
As a result of his perfect showings for Roma this season, Liverpool are heavily linked with a move for his signature during the summer.
Having made Loris Karius his first-choice goalkeeper this season, Jurgen Klopp seems to be restless with the German’s ability due to his inexperience and he is hoping he could lure Allison to the Anfield stadium ahead of next season.
Despite his early approach to Allison’s agent for discussion over a possible move to Anfield stadium, the German tactician could fail in his bid to capture the netminder as Roma president James Pallotta revealed their plans to prevent Allison from completing his reported move to the Premier League giants.
While reacting to the rumours linking the player to Liverpool ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League semi-final clash against Liverpool, James Pallotta revealed that Roma boards are not ready to let go of the Italian goalkeeper.
According to Pallotta, Roma are not going to sell the netminder irrespective of the contract they receive from Liverpool or any other clubs interested in his services.
Pallotta further told Sky Sports Italia that they hope to keep him beyond this season but admits that everything depends on Alison’s decision whether he wants to leave or wants to remain at the club.
This means that Alisson could decide to reunite with Mohammed Salah at the Merseyside club next season as long as Klopp would promise him of regular first-team actions.
