Jurgen Klopp makes big Alisson decision after Roma name price

Tuesday, 12 Jun, 2018

Roma goalkeeper Alisson Becker is "unlikely" to join Liverpool this summer despite months of speculation claiming that the Reds were in pole position for his signature, according to reports.

Speaking after Brazil 3-0 victory over Austria on Sunday evening, Alisson wants to make a decision before the weekend otherwise it will have to wait until after the World Cup.

With Liverpool's efforts to sign Alisson from Roma likely to be of no avail, it seems they are turning their attention elsewhere as they go in search of a new goalkeeper.

Alisson is hoping to see his future resolved before taking in World Cup duty with Brazil, with the highly rated goalkeeper eager to avoid any distractions in Russian Federation.

1994 World Cup victor, now Alisson's global goalkeeping coach, Claudio Taffarel told Tele Radio Stereo: "Alisson is very happy at Roma and the rumours of a transfer are just rumours".

He is very happy with Roma and the transfer rumours are just rumours.

"Alisson can be amongst the best in the world, alongside Courtois, De Gea and [Manuel] Neuer".

"The truth is that I left everything in the hands of my agent".

"We'll see if anything happens this week".

Alisson, 25, kept 22 clean sheets in 49 outings for Roma in Serie A and the Champions League last season, helping them to the semi-finals of the European competition against the odds. "Right now, I'm focused only on the World Cup".

'There are some possibilities and we are working on all of them, together with Roma, always respecting the club.
