As reported by Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, Klopp has spoken to the 25-year-old on the telephone, presumably to give him various assurances and perhaps a little nudge to sign for Liverpool. Chelsea are said to be keen on Alisson too and his agent has reportedly held talks with them, but Liverpool are the only club to have made an official offer to Roma.

Gazzetta reports that Madrid would still be Alisson’s preferred destination, but there is no clear indication that the reigning European champions are willing to make an official offer any time soon.
