Roma goalkeeper Alisson will not be sold this summer, according to club president James Pallotta.
Alisson has been linked with Liverpool and Real Madrid after impressing this season for Roma, who are yet to concede a goal at home in the Champions League.
Sky sources in Italy understand Liverpool first entered into discussions with the Italian side in February over a possible move for the 25-year-old.
However, Pallotta insists he has no desire to let the Brazilian depart this summer.
"We have no intention of selling him," he told Sky Sports in Italy.
"I mean zero at all. I'm sure some people will probably come in with some bids, but I don't have any interest in selling him, he's a great goalkeeper.
"When we got him, I thought the same thing and as far as I'm concerned, I mean no."
Roma travel to face Liverpool at Anfield in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final on April 24, before returning to Italy for the second leg on May 2.
