With Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius having struggled to convince between the posts for the Reds, Jurgen Klopp has been heavily linked with a number of alternatives.

Liverpool have reportedly made a bid in excess of £60 million for Roma goalkeeper Alisson.

Ze Maria Neis' own Instagram page is littered of pictures of himself with Alisson, while he is followed by the Brazilian's verified account.

Several British newspapers reported on Tuesday that the Reds had made an offer but that the Serie A outfit wanted 75m euros (£66.5m).

Monchi, the Director of Sport at the Italian outfit, said recently that Roma don't need to sell to balance the books but such a big offer, a world receord fee for a goalkeeper, would be a windfall which any club would find hard to resist.

The Blues are in the market for another goalkeeper amid intense speculation linking Thibaut Courtois with a move to Real Madrid and Alisson has been identified as a possible replacement for the Belgian worldwide.

The Reds are believed to have submitted a world-record bid for the Brazilian worldwide as they look to finally remedy their long-standing goalkeeping woes. They'll use the money made on offloading Courtois to Real by meeting Roma's asking price, and then some.

Alisson's valuation by Roma is more likely to be met by Chelsea. And the good news from Liverpool's point of view is that they won't need to pay a fee for the player.
