Liverpool transfer rumours: Jasper Cillessen, Nabil Fekir, Manuel Lanzini and Alisson

Liverpool transfer rumours: Jasper Cillessen, Nabil Fekir, Manuel Lanzini and Alisson

The big news is today's report that top goalkeeper option Alisson Becker is nearing a move from AS Roma to Real Madrid.

The Brazilian stopper has been subject to intense transfer speculation with a host of clubs around Europe monitoring his situation.

Suggestions that Fekir had failed a medical seemed unfounded when French Football Federation president Noel Le Graet claimed the player had passed the necessary physical tests. After all, Alisson is only 25, proven at the highest level and is the type of goalkeeper-especially given his excellent distribution-who would fit into a Klopp side well at Anfield.

The possibility of such a move appeared to increase when Roberto Firmino admitted during a press conference last week that Alisson had asked him about life on Merseyside. "Alisson costs a lot, it will take €78 million, he is close to Real Madrid whilst Nainggolan is close to Inter".

Arsenal to play Chelsea in International Champions Cup
The Premier League fixtures for the 2018/19 season have now been revealed, with Arsenal dealt a tricky opening run of matches. Two of England's biggest clubs in the world will face off against each other in the Aviva Stadium on 1 August.

When the deal crosses the line, it'll end Real Madrid's hunt for a new keeper who have been keeping tabs on Manchester United's David De Gea.

"If it doesn't get resolved before our first game [of the World Cup], then we'll talk about it after because during it, my mind is only going to be 100 percent focused on Brazil".

The five-time winners open their campaign against Switzerland on Sunday before facing Costa Rica and Serbia.

Goalkeeper Keylor Navas is expected to stay at Real Madrid next season, regardless of the club's activity in this summer's transfer window.
