Roma sporting director Monchi insists the impending exit of Alisson does not demonstrate a lack of ambition as the goalkeeper closes in on a world-record move to Liverpool.

In 37 Serie A games last season, he kept 17 clean sheets and made 107 saves, per Squawka.

The 25-year-old travelled to England on a private jet on Wednesday evening and will undergo a medical with the Reds in the next few days.

Roma have already lost star midfielder and fan favourite Nainggolan to Italian rivals Inter, while Salah moved to Liverpool last season, but Perotti insists the capital club can cope. Liverpool are expected to finalise the deal for Alisson this weekend for a fee of €75million.

Liverpool's goalkeeping splurge comes almost two months after a nightmare performance from German keeper Loris Karius in the Champions League final - a match in which they lost 3-1.

"Then it's not a long thought, to be honest, it's only that you need to have a little talk with the owners".

Liverpool FC finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last term.

Alexis Ohanian Pays Emotional Tribute To Serena Williams After Wimbledon Loss
Kerber endured a hard 2017 after her most successful campaign the previous year and went without a tournament win for 12 months. Kerber should in theory pose a much sterner test in what is a repeat of the 2016 final, which Williams won in straight sets.

Liverpool and Roma agreed the final details of the transfer yesterday with the fee, which include €5mn in add-ons, to be paid over two years.

"I'm really happy to have the opportunity to play alongside him again". I want them to know we're working to build a stronger team.

"But of course he still has to adapt and age-wise he can improve, the best years are coming in the goalkeeper life, so it's all good".

"I think as much as Jurgen would have wanted to be loyal and do right by the goalkeeper, he's got to go out and get another one", he told Sky Sports.

However, Klopp dismissed concerns over Alisson's price, citing the realities of the market.

'To be with these great people and players day to day is fantastic for me'.
