Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino has revealed that compatriot Alisson Becker has asked him about the club.
The Roma and Brazil goalkeeper has been heavily linked with a switch to Anfield this Summer after some superb performances between the posts for the Serie A club.
But the Italians are desperate to avoid losing another star player to the Reds for a knockdown fee after seeing Egypt international Mohamed Salah leave for just £35m last year before going on to become a world-class performer at Anfield.
But, despite this, Firmino is hopeful that his international colleague will make the move to Merseyside this Summer.
“Yes, he asked me about Liverpool and I hope he can come here, but I know he has other proposals.” he said.
“From time to time I will give him a pinch to come to Liverpool and help us, but it’s with his agents.
“It wouldn’t be bad if he came to Liverpool.” he finished.
Alisson has a reported price tag of around £80m and is also of interest to Champions League winners Real Madrid and Premier League outfit Chelsea, with both linked to bids for his services.
So Liverpool could have a fight on to try and beat off the competition to get a deal done.
