Liverpool ‘receive hope’ in pursuit of Roma star

Liverpool have received hope of signing Alisson from Roma as their new No.1.

The Reds are searching for a new goalkeeper with Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet failing to convince.

The Brazilian shot-stopper has been outstanding for the Giallorossi and attracted widespread interest.

Roma are thought to be ready to double Alisson’s wages, but his representative insists there is no such offer on the table.

Ze Maria Neis told Tele Radio Stereo: "We still haven’t talked to Roma.

"Alisson is settled though and he likes the club and the city."

Valverde on Dembele future

Ernesto Valverde has knocked back claims that Ousmane Dembele will leave on loan for Liverpool.

The Barcelona manager told the media on Tuesday that he has "high hopes for him next season" and expects him to continue his development at the Nou Camp.

Liverpool had been linked with an audacious loan swoop for the French international, who cost an initial £97million, rising to a potential £135million, last summer.

Dembele has endured a difficult first season at Barcelona, starting just nine La Liga games.

But Valverde has given him a glowing tribute.


Klopp meets with Fekir?

Jurgen Klopp has met with Nabil Fekir personally to encourage him to move to Liverpool, according to reports.

The Lyon forward has been linked with a €70million move to Anfield this summer, with the Reds said to be ahead of Premier League rivals Chelsea in the chase for his signature.

A five-year deal for Fekir is on the table – with negotiations also including a transfer for his brother, Yassin, who would link up Liverpool’s Under-23 squad.

Fekir refused to rule out a summer move to Liverpool when he was quizzed on the speculation this weekend.

And now Canal Plus in France are claiming that the France international has already met with Klopp.
