Liverpool want sudden Alisson deal to fend off Real Madrid, PSG

Looks as though Liverpool have ramped up their pursuit of Roma 'keeper Alisson.

Sky Italia has reported the Reds have begun preliminary talks with the Serie A club over the Brazilian.

An approach for the 25-year-old was made in January, and Liverpool are hopeful they can complete a deal within the next few weeks.

PSG and Real Madrid's intent to sign a goalkeeper this summer has hastened Liverpool's deal for Alisson.

The Reds flexed their financial muscle by forking out £70m for Virgil van Dijk last month. And they may have to do the same if they want to sign their top goalkeeper target.

The Giallorossi rate Alisson as one of the world's best in his position and are looking for a world-record £62million transfer fee.

Alisson has 22 caps for Brazil and is set to feature for the Selecao at this year's World Cup.
