Liverpool are being linked with Roma goalkeeper Alisson since last summer transfer market but they couldn’t get his signature.
The Reds also reignited their desire to capture his service during the winter transaction period but all their efforts were unsuccessful.
Having seen Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet fumbled in some matches this season, the German tactician has lost faith in both goaltenders and he hopes he could finally convince Roma to sanction his move to Anfield stadium next season.
It was reported last night via Sky Sport Italia that Roma president James Pallotta is not willing to let go of the impressive goalie as they hope to build the team’s future around him.
Daily Mail suggests that Klopp has been Alison’s longtime admirer and he is willing to sign him as long as the Reds board of directors agree to pay £62m.
The Serie A team could consider letting him go in the summer if Liverpool meet their asking price on the goalkeeper.
Alisson is currently one of the best netminders in the Italian league as he has kept 20 clean sheets from the 35 matches he’s played for the team so far this season.
Should he eventually move to the Anfield stadium in the summer, Alisson would become Premier league’s most expensive goalkeeper, a record held by Manchester City goalie Ederson.
Meanwhile, Jurgen Klopp will be counting on in-form striker Mohammed Salah to help his team overcome Roma’s challenge in tonight’s Champions League semi-final clash.
The Egyptian has scored 41 goals for the Merseyside club in all competitions this season and he will be hoping to add to it against his former club in tonight’s game.
