Liverpool target Alisson says little to convince Roma fans he’s staying

Liverpool and Real Madrid target Alisson did little to convince Roma fans he was staying at the Stadio Olimpico over the weekend.

The Brazilian goalkeeper kept his 22nd clean sheet of the season in 49 games against Serie A champions Juventus yesterday as speculation about his future rages on.

Liverpool’s interest in the 25-year-old, who is heading to Russia for the World Cup this summer, has been confirmed by Roma owner James Pallotta.

Real Madrid are also believed to be chasing the player and Corriere dello Sport claimed recently that Real were ready to make a €60million bid for the player in the summer.

And after the goalless draw with Juve, Alisson was asked again about his future.

“My future? I’m focused on my job and what I do now,” he told Rai Sport, cited in Calciomercato. “I have so many things to do here, I have our last league game and then the World Cup. If I will stay at Roma? We’ll speak about that later.”

Pallotta has always maintained his stance that Alisson is not for sale.

“We have no intention of selling him. No chance,” he told Sky Sport Italia earlier this month.

“I am not going to sell him. Liverpool want to sign him and we are on very good terms with him.”

Liverpool are on the lookout for another goalkeeper, despite Loris Karius’ good form as Jurgen Klopp’s No.1.
