Liverpool have submitted a £62 million offer to Roma for the Brazil global as the club step up their search for a new first-choice goalkeeper ahead of the new season.
Roma are said to want more than the alleged offer but Liverpool remain confident that an agreement can be reached with the Italian giants over the coming weeks.
Goal understands that the Roma brass would like to keep Alisson for next season, but would be willing to give the player his desired move away if they can have a replacement in place.
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 worldwide.
It's reported that the Merseysiders have stepped up their pursuit of the 25-year-old after rumours of their interest swirled throughout the transfer window.
Alisson is the number one choice for the Brazil National team and played in every game for Brazil at the World Cup in Russian Federation.
After Liverpool's defeat to Real Madrid in the Champions League final, it emerged that Karius had suffered a concussion after being elbowed by Sergio Ramos.
Loris Karius has already made errors in pre-season.
The 25-year-old has been at Roma for two years after starting his career at Brazilian side Internacional.
