According to several well connected sources this afternoon, Liverpool are ready to obliterate the transfer record for a goalkeeper.
The Blues are in the market for another goalkeeper amid intense speculation linking Thibaut Courtois with a move to Real Madrid and Alisson has been identified as a possible replacement for the Belgian global.
Several British newspapers reported on Tuesday that the Reds had made an offer but that the Serie A outfit wanted 75m euros (£66.5m).
Liverpool reportedly decide to make a bid in the region of £62m for Roma goalkeeper Alisson.

A deal could be completed as soon as Wednesday, but definitely before the Orioles resume the regular season on Friday in Toronto. Sources told Olney the Orioles were going through medical records and other paperwork involved in the trade.
The Reds have submitted a sensational £62 million bid for Alisson as Jürgen Klopp looks to ensure that his ambition of winning silverware in England is not derailed by another season dogged by shocking goalkeeping errors.
Alisson has been Klopp's number one target all summer, the situation growing in urgency as the new season nears after Loris Karius' calamitous Champions League final performance. Florentino Pérez's interest in a new goalkeeper is no secret after high profile mistakes by Keylor Navas against Juventus and Bayern Munich last season.
The 25-year-old has been at Roma for two years after starting his career at Brazilian side Internacional.
It's been suggested by reports in Italy that he has already met with the Liverpool manager as he seizes up what the best next move is for his burgeoning career.
