Will £62m be enough to land Alisson?

Aldridge's views will be echoed by a majority of Liverpool fans, with surveys carried out by the Liverpool Echo in recent days confirming the club's fans are keen to see a new keeper arrive at Anfield, especially after Karius made another big mistake in a pre-season game at Tranmere last week.

Roma are said to want more than the alleged offer but Liverpool remain confident that an agreement can be reached with the Italian giants over the coming weeks.

The agent of Roma goalkeeper Alisson has got fans very excited by "liking" an Instagram post suggesting the Brazilian will choose to join Liverpool over Chelsea.

The Reds are believed to have submitted a world-record bid for the Brazilian global as they look to finally remedy their long-standing goalkeeping woes.

Liverpool have emerged favourites to signing Roma goalkeeper, Becker Alisson ahead of Chelsea.

Reports yesterday claimed the Reds had tabled a £62m bid for the Brazil worldwide, 25.

Chelsea are a club also believed to be interested in the players services, with Thibaut Courtouis potentially making a move to Real Madrid after his World Cup performances.

Roma are already reportedly planning to spend their potential Alisson windfall.

Another Brazil worldwide in Liverpool's sights is midfielder Bernard, who is also wanted by Arsenal and Everton. So many observers have suggested Karius was not up to the job of being first choice keeper for the club and that decision came back to bite him.

The 25-year-old stopper started his career with Internacional in Brazil before moving to Roma two years ago.
