TWITTERLiverpool transfer news Paulo Dybala has been linked with Liverpool

Roma are holding out for another €5mn to take the total fee to €75mn (£66.6mn) for the 25-year-old but both clubs are hopeful that an agreement can be reached.

Per Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol, Chelsea are also set to lose their goalkeeper with Thibaut Courtois set to join Real Madrid.

Liverpool have edged back in front of Chelsea in the race for AS Roma goalkeeper Alisson Becker. Real Madrid, another possible suitor, have yet to make contact with Roma.

Manchester City paid Benfica 40m euros for another Brazilian keeper Ederson last summer.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has personally spoken to Roma goalkeeper Alisson as the Reds look to secure a deal to sign the Brazilian global. On-going concerns over Karius' form, however, plus the prospect of a compromise with the Italian club, has prompted a renewed effort to land Klopp's first choice. Simon Mignolet, who started last season as number 1 at Anfield, is also expected to move on this summer.

But according to The Times, the 25-year-old has given an indication that he would prefer to join Liverpool instead of Chelsea. Jurgen Klopp encourages his keeper to swiftly move on possession, and Alisson has the ability to add an extra dimension to Liverpool's swift attacking movement with his impressive mid to long range deliveries.

In a friendly game against Tranmere last week, Karius spilled the ball from a free kick which led to a goal for the League Two side.
