Liverpool want Alisson from Roma following Virgil van Dijk transfer but face PSG competition

Jurgen Klopp has already spent £75m on a new centre-back and now wants to continue strengthening his backline

Liverpool are reportedly set to battle Paris Saint-Germain for Roma star Alisson.

Gazzetta dello Sport claims the goalkeeper, 25, is being lined up for a move to Anfield by Jurgen Klopp.

Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius have both failed to impress this season.

And after spending £75million on Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk, it now appears that Klopp is also willing to splash the cash on a top-level shot-stopper.

Brazil international Alisson has made 25 appearances in all competitions for Roma this season.

He will battle Manchester City’s Ederson for a place in the starting XI at this summer’s World Cup.

However, Liverpool aren’t the only team interested in the former Internacional ace.

The report adds that PSG could also make a bid as they look to tighten up at the back.

Alphonse Areola’s game is lacking in certain places, while back-up Kevin Trapp is expected to be sold shortly.
