Premier League giants Liverpool and La Liga holders Real Madrid have now suffered a blow in their chase to sign AS Roma star Alisson, with the Serie A star all set to sign a new deal with his current club.
This is something that both the Reds and Los Blancos would not want, as they look at add him to their squads, in order to reinforce it.

Apart from this top duo, former Ligue 1 champs Paris Saint-Germain are also keen on bringing him to the Parc des Princes and will look to make an offer for his services.
On the other hand, the Romans are looking to convince him to sign a new deal, which will add a €90m (£80m) release clause added to his contract. If he does agree to sign a new contract with the club from Italy, it might mean that he will possibly remain at the Stadio Olimpico for the years to come.
The La Liga champs were also keen in not letting that happen and will face off against the Merseyside outfit in the upcoming transfer window. Zinedine Zidane’s side have not had the best of times this term and will now look to change things around, once the current season ends. A recent story has further suggested that Jurgen Klopp’s side have already made the approach to bring the star in, as they wish to win some major titles.
The German manager is still trophyless since his move to Anfield and is trying his best to make that change now, with the additions of some quality player upfront. However, his main concern previously and even at present will be in front of goal. Both Mignolet and Karius have not been able to gain the trust of the Kop boss and are still fighting to impress him.
They have failed to live up to expectations thus far and it will be interesting to see whether the addition of Alisson will actually make a difference to Klopp and his team’s chances of winning something finally.
