Roma accept Liverpool transfer bid for Alisson

Alisson's agent will meet with Roma chiefs discussing a potential move to Liverpool or Chelsea

Let's take a look at Alisson's profile and what he brings to Liverpool.

Wednesday proved to be a breakthrough day as far as agreeing on a deal with AS Roma for the transfer of Alisson is concerned.

The Brazil global, who featured at the World Cup in Russian Federation earlier this summer, made 49 appearances for Roma last season.

Chelsea are on the look out for a new goalkeeper amid strong speculation linking Thibaut Courtois with a move to Real Madrid with the Belgian worldwide keen on a return to Spain after refusing to sign a new contract.

Loris Karius' two mistakes in the Champions League final and sloppy error against Tranmere last week proved he's not good enough to be No.1.

He has been on holiday after playing in all five of Brazil's fixtures at the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer before they were knocked out by Belgium in the quarterfinals.

Sweden's Dantorp finishes fast to lead Scottish Open
Confidence snowballs in a good and bad way and obviously I'm on a good wave at the moment. "Hopefully I can keep riding it". Dantorp had fallen off the pace as he struggled for consistency as Stone excelled, but a birdie at the 16th proved crucial.

Klopp could still move for Nabil Fekir again after the deal collapsed before the World Cup.

"Maybe something happens but it should not be the last day".

Liverpool really are enjoying themselves in the summer transfer window. In terms of squad planning, I am fine. "He's a great guy, was a strong part of the locker room dynamic and we're sorry to see him go, but life is like that". Could something still happen?

It's a big move for a Liverpool team looking to keep up with the likes of Manchester City, as the team seeks its first title since 1990. That is how it is.

Liverpool, on the other hand, have a well documented goalkeeping problem, which only subsided for six months in the second half of last season. "They know we need quality and they know if we win something, we will win it with 25 players".
