Gabriele Marcotti on Alisson to Liverpool

Fekir was so confident of Liverpool transfer he’d already chosen shirt number Why neither Liverpool nor Lyon 'have confirmed the reason for Fekir's transfer breaking down'

Alisson is one of the most sought after goalkeepers in European football after repeatedly catching the eye in an impressive season.

The Brazilian shot stopper, who is valued at around £61million, kept 17 clean sheets for Roma in Serie A last season.

Alisson will star in this year's World Cup as Brazil's No.1, pipping Manchester City ace Ederson to the post.

Alisson knows that he would have to compete with Keylor Navas, but he thinks that he will get minutes with Julen Lopetegui.

But it appears that Liverpool are leading the race to sign him with their interest going up after their move for Nabil Fekir was cancelled.

However, after being linked with the 25-year-old for so long, reports this week have claimed that the German has given up his hopes of capturing Alisson, and will turn his attention elsewhere.
