Liverpool will continue to consider their goalkeeper options with Alisson Becker's future expected to lie elsewhere.

The Reds have been linked with the Roma shot-stopper constantly during the past six months as Jurgen Klopp looks to overhaul his goalkeeping department.

A report in Brazil on Monday evening claimed the Reds had made a 65million euro bid for the player.

That, though, is untrue, with there being no change in Liverpool's stance from earlier this year when they informed Alisson's representatives not to expect a bid this summer.

Roma have no intention of selling the Brazil international, nor has the player asked to be put up for sale.

However, the Serie A side are putting in place a contingency plan should receive an offer they would struggle to refuse, said to be in excess of 70 million euros.

Roma are determined not to allow Liverpool or any club pick up any of their players for what could be considered a cut-price fee having been chastened by the success of Mohamed Salah at Anfield, the Egyptian joining for a comparatively cheap £36.9m.

Liverpool have kept tabs on Alisson but have made no contact with Roma, with indications the Reds believe a deal for the Brazil international would prove difficult.

And in any case, it is understood Alisson would prefer a move to Real Madrid should the Spaniards, who are considering their own goalkeeping position, choose to meet the asking price.
