Two of the players reported to be on Liverpool's summer wish list are Roma's number 1, Alisson Becker as well as Monaco midfielder Thomas Lemar. The Reds are thought to be eyeing up Alisson to solve their ongoing goalkeeping problem with Lemar viewed as a potential successor to Philipe Coutinho.
But the Merseyside club will have a battle on their hands to sign Brazil's current number one, with Roma club president James Pallotta insisting that the keeper is not for sale, informing Sky Sports Italy that the Italian club want to keep the 25-year-old stopper:
We have no intention of selling him. I mean zero at all. I'm sure some people will probably come in with some bids, but I don't have any interest in selling him, he's a great goalkeeper. When we got him, I thought the same thing and as far as I'm concerned, I mean no.
Liverpool will get to see the Roma keepers talent up close when they face off against Roma in the Champions League semi-final next Tuesday.
Reds fans have slightly more optimistic news in their pursuit of Thomas Lemar however, with Monaco vice-president Vadim Vasilyev claiming that the club would prefer to sell the midfielder to Liverpool over Premier League rivals Arsenal.
Speaking to French station Telefoot, Vasilyev did warn potential suitors saying 'good luck to those that want him', but it is understood that Monaco's position has softened especially given the fact that Lemar has somewhat regressed this term. The attacker had his breakout season last year scoring 14 goals in 55 appearances, in comparison to 3 goals in 29 appearances this season.
In March, Lemar revealed to Telefoot that he was disappointed when a move from Monaco didn't materialise and added that all he can do is keep working in the hope that Liverpool & Arsenal come back to the 22-year-old in the next transfer window.
