LiverpoolFC.TV - Tue, 17/07/2018 - 18:10

Liverpool have denied making a 70m euro bid for Roma goalkeeper Alisson Becker after reports in Italy suggested the two clubs were in talks.

However, Sky in Italy claim that a fee of 70m euros has been offered by Liverpool, although Roma want closer to 75m euros (£66.6m) to complete the deal, and that talks between the two sides are ongoing.

Sources close to Liverpool have told Sky Sports News that there has been no bid and no approach for Alisson.

Sky sources have previously told us that Liverpool have no plans to bid for Alisson this summer.

The 25-year-old made 49 appearances for Roma last season as he helped the Serie A side reach the semi-finals of the Champions League where they lost 7-6 to Liverpool over two legs.

Alisson played five times for Brazil at the World Cup in Russia where his side suffered a quarter-final defeat to Belgium.

Liverpool are in advanced discussions over a £66million deal, including bonuses, for Roma goalkeeper Alisson Becker.

The Brazil international has been Jurgen Klopp's number one target to strengthen his goalkeeping options but the fee had been considered prohibitive.

That hesitation had allowed Real Madrid and particularly Chelsea in recent weeks to post their intent to sign the 25-year-old.

Liverpool make £62 million bid for Alisson, talks ongoing

ThisIsAnfield.com - Tue, 17/07/2018 - 17:05

Liverpool have made an initial £62 million bid for Roma goalkeeper Alisson, with the two clubs in negotiations over a world-record deal.


The Reds were touted with a big-money offer by a host of Italian journalists earlier on Tuesday and this has now been corroborated by all the Liverpool-based media.

It’s reported that the bid is worth £62 million – made up of £53m up front, with £9m of add ons.

That equates to around €70 million – but Roma are said to want €75 million, meaning Liverpool will need to negotiate a deal or add another £4.4 million to their bid.

  • Liverpool have offered €70 million (£62m)
  • Roma seeking €75 million but willing to negotiate
  • Alisson open to prospect of joining the Reds
  • Goalkeeper expected to have spoken to Klopp ahead of move

Alisson has attracted interest from both Chelsea and Real Madrid this summer, but the latter are more likely to sign Thibaut Courtois, who is expected to leave Stamford Bridge.

Furthermore, given Liverpool are in the Champions League and the Blues only qualified for the Europa League with last season’s fifth-placed finish, Klopp’s side have the upper hand.

If a deal goes through, the Reds would have paid world-record fees for both a goalkeeper and a defender.

This would be a significant statement of intent, particularly given they have been two of the club’s biggest problem areas in recent seasons.

Liverpool FC release new images and details of Reds new training ground

ThisIsAnfield.com - Tue, 17/07/2018 - 17:00

Liverpool FC have released new images and confirmed more details on the Reds’ new training facility at Kirkby, which is due to be completed in 2020.


The development will see the Reds’ first team and academy football training operations and facilities come together on one site in a new training campus.

The project will provide LFC with world-class training facilities including an Elite Performance Centre for the first team and state-of-the-art training centre for its development squad teams.

The new 9,200sqm training centre on LFC’s Academy site creates a combined First Team and U23 Academy facility, each of which has their own identity, along with new First Team pitches and parking within the site.

The facilities will incorporate two gyms, a full-size sports hall, pool, hydrotherapy complex and specialist sports rehabilitation suites. There will also be dedicated TV studios, press conference facilities and office accommodation.

The club has appointed building and civil engineering contractors, McLaughlin & Harvey, to deliver the project, as reported by This Is Anfield yesterday.

The project also includes the redevelopment of Knowsley Council’s Eddie McArdle community playing fields at Simonswood Lane.

Improvements include five upgraded football pitches, new changing rooms and associated facilities including car parking for 110 vehicles, a new pedestrian and cycle pathway, lighting and improved security.

The new changing facilities on site will include six separate team changing rooms, coaches changing room and a social room for team and community use. The community will also benefit from inproved pitches which will also be reconstructed with improved drainage.

Liverpool have started the sales process for its existing first team training ground, Melwood.

Melwood has played a significant role in LFC’s history, however, the site is limited in terms of space and is unable to accommodate the club’s new combined training facility.

Andy Hughes, Chief Operating Officer, Liverpool Football Club said: “Today represents a significant milestone in the Club’s history. We would like to thank Knowsley Council and local residents for their time and support throughout the planning stages of this project.

“This is a major step forward for the Club and we’re proud to be investing in the Knowsley area. Our aspirations to create a clear pathway for our young players through to the first team is an ambitious project. The site in Kirkby provides the ideal location for the new home of our elite performance centre and state-of-the-art training facility.

“The scheme will not only provide first class facilities for our players and staff, but also help create quality sports facilities for the community of Kirkby to enjoy.”

Work is expected to start on the Council’s community pitches in late July, with construction starting on LFC’s Academy site in early October.

The project is expected to be completed in 2020.

Italian journalists claim Liverpool in advanced talks with Roma over Alisson

ThisIsAnfield.com - Tue, 17/07/2018 - 16:35

Liverpool are said to be in talks with Roma over a deal to sign goalkeeper Alisson, with the Brazilian now believed to favour a move to Anfield.


UPDATE: Liverpool have bid £62 million (70m euros) for Alisson – a world record fee for a goalkeeper. More here.

The Reds have been linked with the 25-year-old since the beginning of the year, but speculation cooled as Roma sought a big-money fee.

Alisson served as Brazil’s No. 1 during the World Cup, but following their exit from the quarter-finals new claims have emerged over the stopper’s future.

According to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, who works for both Sky Sports and the Guardian, maintains that Liverpool have begun talks with Roma over a deal.

Taking to Twitter on Tuesday afternoon he added that the Reds have offered €70 million including add-ons, though the Serie A side are seeking a further €5 million with “talks ongoing.”

Encouragingly, Romano claims that despite rumoured interest “Chelsea have not made another bid” at this stage.

And most importantly he states that “Alisson would accept the Liverpool bid,” but he is “waiting for total agreement” between the two clubs.

This is corroborated by Sky Sports’ Gianluca Di Marzio, who writes that a deal is “very close,” with Liverpool and Roma “working to seek the final agreement.”

  • Liverpool claimed to have offered €70 million
  • Roma seeking €75 million but willing to negotiate
  • Alisson open to prospect of joining the Reds
  • Goalkeeper expected to have spoken to Klopp ahead of move

Di Marzio suggests Alisson will have already held talks with Klopp due to this development, while adding that he could be replaced by either Alphonse Areola or Robin Olsen.

Romano and Di Marzio’s reports follow up a host of Italian sources including Il Messaggero, La Repubblica and Corriere dello Sport.

This comes in the wake of Loris Karius‘ latest shaky displays for the Reds in pre-season, with Klopp clearly not convinced with the 25-year-old.

Alisson’s arrival would be a major statement of intent from Liverpool, though given Karius’ troubles it would seemingly not be a smooth transition.
