Liverpool have been told Thomas Strakosha will cost £35million, according to reports in Italy.

The Reds have had to rethink their goalkeeping targets this summer after baulking at Roma’s asking price for Alisson. Liverpool had been hoping to seal a deal for Alisson, but the Brazil No.1 now seems set to join Real Madrid instead.

Jurgen Klopp has now moved on to other targets and Lazio stopper Strakosha has shot to the top of the list. Sport Italia claim Liverpool have made contract with Lazio and their interest in the Albanian is serious. Lazio has responded to Liverpool enquiry, and are demanding £35m.

The Italians hope such an asking price will scare Liverpool off as they do not want to sell Strakosha. However, if Liverpool were to return with an offer of £35m or higher, Lazio would be forced to accept.
