Roma goalkeeper Alisson flattered by Liverpool transfer interest
Roma star Alisson has admitted interest from Liverpool is flattering, but insisted he is not thinking about a potential move in the summer.
The Brazilian goalkeeper has been linked with a transfer to Liverpool for several months, and the focus on a rumoured swap has intensified with the Reds taking on Roma in the Champions League semi-final.
Roma seem set to go out of Europe at the hands of Liverpool, and Alisson could be one of their stars who may angle for a summer switch.
But the 25-year-old is not thinking about his future and is fully focused on performing for Roma.
He told Gazzetta dello Sport: I dont know what will happen (in the summer). Obviously, the interest makes me happy.
But I dont think its a question of needing (to move). I know what Im worth, not money wise, but as a player.
I know what I bring to the team, but I only think about the present. What happens next, we leave for later.
Reports have claimed Alisson could fetch a fee upwards of £50million, which would be a record amount paid for a goalkeeper.
Manchester Citys Ederson stands as the most expensive stopper in the world at £34.7m.

Roma do not want to cash in on Alisson and have repeatedly said they will not entertain offers below £50m for their No.1 goalkeeper.
Liverpool are thought to exploring their options this summer, despite the fact Loris Karius has made great strides as the Reds No.1 stopper.
Karius took the No.1 spot from Simon Mignolet this season after a shaky start to his Liverpool career.
