Roma accepts Liverpool bid for Allison
According to various reports. AS Roma have accepted Liverpool’s record breaking 67 million pound bid for Brazilian Goalkeeper Alisson.
It is also believed the 25-year-old has agreed personal term with the Champions League finalists and is scheduled to undergo a Melwood medical on Thursday.
The Brazilian is currently on holiday after playing for his country in the just concluded World Cup. Chelsea are also thought to be on his case as a replacement for Coutouis who might be on his way to Real Madrid.
Alisson is likely to replace Karius, whose mistakes costs Liverpool the Champions League final.
Klopp has refused to comment on the deal, with fear Chelsea might still rival their bid.
The former Borrussia Dortmund coach said:
“I am not 100 per cent sure but maybe it is the first year we don’t sell a key player,”
“There was always a lot of change, but in both directions. Now it is more in one direction. That is clear. Big teams, successful teams, if you don’t buy it you have to build it.
“That means stay together, bring additions in and make the next step.
“The team and squad is in a really good moment. They know we need the depth in the squad. They know we need the quality and they know that if we win something here then we will win it with 25 players. That is exactly how we feel. I am really looking forward to the season.
“I know it will be long and hard and difficult and all that stuff, but if we are lucky with injuries a little bit – and getting one or two penalties at least at Anfield – then it should be OK.”
