Liverpool unlikely to move for Alisson

Alisson, on his future: Let's see if anything happens before the World Cup... Roma keeper Alisson drops hint his future will be resolved before start of World Cup

Having starred in Serie A over the last two seasons, the 25-year-old talent is drawing plenty of admiring glances from afar.

Alisson is hoping to see his future resolved before taking in World Cup duty with Brazil, with the highly rated goalkeeper eager to avoid any distractions in Russian Federation.

Roma, though, have stated on a regular basis that they have no intention of sanctioning a sale and Taffarel believes that Alisson could remain in the Italian capital for 2018-19.

Roma goalkeeper Alisson Becker hopes to have his future resolved before Brazil begin their World Cup campaign against Switzerland on Sunday.

'There are many possibilities on which we are working, but always together with Roma and with respect to my club.

"Let's see if something happens this week." he said to reporters when questioned in the wake of Brazil's 3-0 victory over Austria. To be honest, I've left it all in the hands of my agents.

You'd imagine the clubs want the same, given what an impressive World Cup can do to a player's valuation.

But Liverpool pulling out gives Real Madrid the freedom to pick their first choice option to replace Keylor Navas in their own time.

They have been linked with David de Gea and Thibaut Courtois as well as Alisson.

The Reds pulled out of a deal to sign Nabil Fekir this weekend after believing they had agreed to sign the £50m man.

Liverpool have been very active already this summer, signing Fabinho, along with Naby Keita who joined after agreeing a deal in January.
