Liverpool have no immediate plans to make a move for in-demand Roma goalkeeper Alisson Becker.
Reports in Italy this morning have claimed the Reds have made an offer for the Brazilian worth 60million euros plus 5m in add-ons.
However, such suggestions are wide of the mark with Liverpool not considering a bid for the 25-year-old at present.
There has been no contact with Roma and no change in the Reds' stance from earlier this year when they informed Alisson's representatives not to expect a bid this summer.
Liverpool had been monitoring the Brazilian but believe prising him away from the Serie A side would prove difficult given the player's believed price tag in excess of 70m euros.
Roma are wary of having their fingers burned after last year selling Mohamed Salah to Liverpool for what now appears a cut-price £36.9m.
It's also understood Alisson would prefer a move to Real Madrid, with the Spaniards having joined Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain in being linked with a strong interest.
While Roma have no intention of selling Alisson, and the player has not asked to be put up for sale, their sporting director Monchi admitted this week the club were duty bound to listen to offers.
“He has the same chance of staying as all the other players we have not received any offers for,” he said. “If one arrives, we will study it and make a decision.”
