Liverpool receive boost in bid to complete massive summer transfer of Roma Star Alisson

A report on French website L'Equipe states that Roma have started looking at replacements for the 25-year-old as speculatuion mounts on his future. Liverpool have been linked with a mammoth £70m move for the keeper, a figure which has caused the Anfield hierarchy to look elswehere. Yet according to L'Equipe, Roma are open to selling Alisson, and have prepared for his departure by monitoring the situation of Toulouse teenager Alban Lafont. That could leave the door open for Alisson to depart - although Roma will have to lower their asking price to tempt clubs into making a bid for their star man. Liverpool's actions in the summer depend on the development of Loris Karius. If Karius maintains his current standards until May then Liverpool are likely to be in the market for someone to compete with him rather than replace him.


But if L'Equipe are to be believed, Roma have started preparing for Alisson's departure. His next destination, however, remains very much unclear. Financial boost Liverpool’s progress to the quarter finals of the Champions League has guaranteed a £50m windfall, reports the Liverpool Echo . Jurgen Klopp’s men have so far triggered payments from UEFA of €56m, obviously rising the further they go in the competition. Reporter James Pearce writes around £20m is from the TV pool, with a further £18.5m in prize money - the rest is the guaranteed fixed payment for all clubs who reach the group stage. It underlines the importance of Liverpool’s return to Europe’s elite after a three-year absence. Jamie Carragher spitting victim's family tell Sky Sports not to sack the ex Liverpool star The Reds recently announced record revenues of £364m for the year up to the end of May 2017 – a sharp rise of 20.5% - with a profit of £39m. However, that was a season without European football and partly explains why the club’s turnover still remains so far behind the likes of Manchester United (£581m), Manchester City (£473m) and Arsenal (£423m). Jose Mourinho says something very surprising about Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp Data compiled by the excellent Swiss Ramble blog compares the Reds’ financial performance to their main Premier League rivals. Liverpool’s profit of £39m for 2016/17 is bettered only by Leicester City (£92m), Manchester United (£57m), Arsenal (£45m) and West Ham (£43m). Halo goodbye Match Of The Day host Gary Lineker has caused a stir with comments about former Liverpool star Jamie Carragher and his controversial spitting controversy. He was suspended by Sky Sports on Monday after footage showed him spitting at the 14-year-old Manchester United fan and her dad. After being shown the Mirror’s ­exclusive footage of the spit shame, Carragher told Sky News: “I have no excuse and it is ­devastating for the family involved and my own family, but it is my actions which have brought that on." The incident led to a cheeky tweet from Gary Lineker which poked fun at the Sky Sports ban. Carragher was called to London on Monday for talks with Sky Sports chiefs before the broadcasting company announced he was suspended from work. The former Liverpool captain, who is a regular on MNF, was due to appear on the show covering Stoke City's clash against Manchester City. His absence led Lineker to tweeting: "Seems @ Carra23 can’t do it on a cold, damp Monday night at Stoke."
