Liverpool in talks with Roma over deal for Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson

Reports claim Jurgen Klopp's side are to announce the signing in 'next few days' but others suggest negotiations have opened only recently

Liverpool are in talks with Roma goalkeeper Alisson over a January move, according to reports.

Anfield boss Jurgen Klopp must reinvest wisely the £145million he pocketed from the sale of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona.

Website 90min.com say Alisson has caught the attention of the German manager.

The Brazilian started his career at Internacional in his home country and moved to Roma in August 2016 for around £6.6m.

There he served as understudy to former Arsenal keeper Wojciech Szczesny before breaking into the starting line-up.

Only Manchester City have scored more goals than Liverpool this season.

Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino and former team-mate Coutinho had scored the lion’s share of the 50 they have netted.

But the 25 goals they have conceded is the worst of any side in the top four so shoring up defensively is a massive priority for the Reds.
