Roma president Pallotta claims he was joking about Alisson joining Real Madrid

Alisson has always been linked with a move to Liverpool FC and he has earned a reputation as one of the top goalkeepers in Europe following his fine displays for AS Roma recently.

According to Spanish newspaper AS, talks between Real Madrid and Roma are now at an advanced stage.

Liverpool could reportedly still resurrect their hopes of signing Nabil Fekir from Lyon this summer if president Jean-Michel Aulas softens his stance.

He will start the World Cup as Brazil's number one ahead of Manchester City's Ederson.

The need for reinforcements between the sticks at Anfield was highlighted in the recent UEFA Champions League final, as Loris Karius made two costly errors for Liverpool in the 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid.

The possibility of such a move appeared to increase when Roberto Firmino admitted during a press conference last week that Alisson had asked him about life on Merseyside.

Speaking to ESPN FC, Marcotti said: "I think there is contract negotiation going on".

'There are options we are working on togetehr with Roma and with respect for my club, ' Alisson said earlier this week.

"Burnley's World Cup bound Nick Pope has been linked, and the Lancashire club's other 'keeper Tom Heaton has been on the radar in the past", added Maddock.
