"'I Tell Alisson To Come To Liverpool!" Jokes Firmino

Transfer News Arsenal have tabled a £26m bid for Gelson Martins

According to the same story, Liverpool FC could now turn their focus to Southampton number two McCarthy as an alternative to Alisson and Oblak in the current transfer window.

A new goalkeeper is the priority for Liverpool.

Alisson joined Roma from Brazilian side Internacional in 2016 and broke into the first team following the departure of Wojciech Szczesny to Juventus.

This summer, after already convincing Fabinho to join the club, Roberto Firmino looks to be tapping up his Brazilian teammate Alisson, with Liverpool heavily interested in signing the Roma goalkeeper. "Oblak priced out of market by Atletico and Liverpool will not bid at £88 million".

"He's is in the next room to me, he is my next rival but I congratulated him and I hope he has a lot of success playing at Manchester United", said Firmino.

Interesting. Liverpool fans will only hope Firmino's attempts to bring Alisson to Anfield eventually pay dividends.

The Costa Rican nearly moved to Manchester United as part of the move that would have taken de Gea to Madrid back in 2015, and is likely to want to quit the club if the deal finally happens this summer.

"From time to time I will give him a pinch to come to Liverpool and help us, but it's with his agents", he added.

Liverpool could be set to sign Roma goalkeeper Alisson this summer after former Premier League shot-stopper Shaka Hislop claimed the transfer was "a done deal". "His agent is sorting his future but it wouldn't be a bad thing to have him here at Liverpool", Firmino said while on worldwide duty with one of the clubs considered to be a favorite at this year's tournament.
