Liverpool will finally move ahead with an offer for Roma stopper Alisson next week as Jurgen Klopp attempts to resolve his goalkeeping emergency at last.
Liverpool were said to have put plans on hold to bring in a new number one this summer as top target Alisson was valued too highly by the Italian club.
Following some apathetic displays in the early stages of pre-season, though, The Mirror suggests that Klopp now admits that Loris Karius has to be replaced before the window closes.
The Reds will open discussion with Roma in the next few days, it is claimed, with a fee in the region of £58m likely required to get a contract over the line.
Alisson, presently resting following his World Cup exertions with Brazil, is furthermore said to be on the radar of Real Madrid as well as Chelsea.
