After receiving a major boost in their race to sign Brazil young forward Malcom, Liverpool have yet again received another boost in their desire to bring a new goalkeeper to Anfield.
The Reds have been heavily linked with a move for Roma netminder Alisson for two transfer markets but they couldn’t finalize a deal for his signature due to Roma’s desire to tie him down to the Stadio Olimpico.
Despite their back-to-back defeat in their chase for his services during previous transfer periods, Liverpool are reportedly set to reignite their interest to lure him to Anfield in the summer despite Real Madrid’s interest in the shot-stopper.
There is a good news for Liverpool fans via Don Balon, who are reporting that Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has pulled out of the race for Alisson’s services.
According to the Spanish publication, Kaylor Navas will continue as the Los Blancos first-choice netminder next season after they failed to get a positive response from Manchester United for David De Gea’s service.
The Brazilian was in great form for the Serie A side in the just-concluded season, especially in the Champions League competition where he helped the team overcome Barcelona’s threat despite losing 3-1 in the first leg of the quarter-final tie.
It remains unknown who would eventually win the race to sign the 26-year-old netminder in the summer.
