Alisson approach unlikely to be made by Liverpool

Liverpool are unlikely to make an approach to sign Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson from Roma, Sky Sports News understands.

It is understood Liverpool are unwilling to meet Roma's £80m valuation of the player - potentially a world-record price for a goalkeeper.

Another source has told Sky Sports News that Alisson's likely destination is Real Madrid. The reigning European champions still hold an interest in Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, who is entering the final year of his deal.

It is thought Chelsea would make a move for Alisson if Courtois was to go to Madrid.

Sky Sports News reported in February that Liverpool were trying to sign Alisson, having initially made an enquiry for his services during the January transfer window.
