Reports: Roma want £79m from Liverpool for Alisson; Man Utd target Porto’s Dalot

Hello and welcome to Wednesday. It’s going to be an extremely quick one today because I’m up really late. I’m not sure this could even be called a blog post to be honest, because it’ll be very short.

A report in the Guardian says that Liverpool have made contact with Roma over the availability of their goalkeeper Alisson. The Italian club reportedly want £79m if they’re to part ways with Brazil’s first-choice goalkeeper. Roma would ideally like to keep him for another season though, and will offer him a new deal to try to tie him down.

A quick google has shown me that Liverpool are also being linked with Jan Oblak and Gianluigi Donnarumma, but I’m not sure how accurate those reports are. I think Liverpool would have been linked with signing goalkeepers this summer anyway, but after Loris Karius’ mistakes in the Champions League final, I think we’ll see them constantly linked. We could be in for a saga.

Another report, this one in the Guardian too, says that Man Utd are targeting Porto’s right-back, Diogo Dalot. The 19-year-old is seen as somebody that could be a long-term successor to Antonio Valencia, and somebody that can come in now and provide competition and cover for the Ecuadorian, who will be 33 by the time next season starts. The report says that Dalot has a release clause of £17.5m, but United are yet to trigger that for a player that played just seven times last season. Matteo Darmian is expected to leave Old Trafford this summer, so Dalot could come in and replace him.

Anyway, that’s about it for now. I could whip some more transfer rumours out, but from what I can see after a quick look around this morning, these are the only ones that sound like they could be reliable. I’ll be back tomorrow (with more than this, hopefully), so drop back in then. Have a good Wednesday.
