Jurgen Klopp makes big Alisson decision after Roma name price

Jurgen Klopp makes big Alisson decision after Roma name price

He told reporters after a 3-0 friendly victory over Austria: "I believe and I hope that everything will be resolved before the start of the World Cup".

Roma, though, have stated on a regular basis that they have no intention of sanctioning a sale and Taffarel believes that Alisson could remain in the Italian capital for 2018-19.

Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo claimed that Liverpool were willing to offer €65m for Alisson this summer, and manager Jürgen Klopp even promised the Brazil worldwide the No. 1 spot at Anfield next season.

The same report claims that Alisson would cost Liverpool €70 million (£61.6 million) - an extortionate amount for a goalkeeper, but a figure that could prove to be priceless if the Merseysiders go on to win the league title for the first time since 1990. We will see what will happen this week'. To be honest, I've left it all in the hands of my agents.

Despite the transfer speculation, Alisson could yet sign a contract extension with Roma. There are some possibilities and we are working on all of them, together with Roma, always respecting the club.

Real Madrid have also been linked with a move for Thibaut Courtois, however, and are following his situation in west London closely.

Alisson registered 17 clean sheets for Roma in Serie A last term - the second-highest total behind only Napoli's Pepe Reina.

You'd imagine the clubs want the same, given what an impressive World Cup can do to a player's valuation.

He will start for Brazil at this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation, but before that kicks off he wants a deal wrapped up.
