The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern all seem to have made spectacular U-turns on their opinions of Roma and Brazil goalkeeper, Alisson. The 25-year-old ‘keeper was heavily linked with an Anfield move although that seems to have fallen through. According to Marca Chelsea are now frontrunners and the Reds have been slating Alisson’s ability.

This summer looks like being a pivotal one for a number of the Premier League’s top clubs. Chelsea and Liverpool especially. The Reds will be hoping they can pick up their first piece of silverware under Jurgen Klopp having lost their 3rd major final under the German last season, whilst Chelsea will be hoping for a top-four finish to see them return to the Champions League after missing out last season.
The Blues could be selling both Thibaut Courtois and Eden Hazard meaning some serious summer business would be required. Whilst Hazard would be harder to replace, Alisson could be the perfect man for the Blues to fill Courtois’ boots. The Kopites don’t seem too bothered with Alisson’s rumoured move to Liverpool as their interest has cooled off and have even taken the step to slate the shot-stoppers ability after watching him for Brazil in the World Cup.

Don't know why they'd want a new keeper. I'd have courtois at Liverpool all day long!

As you can see, the Liverpool fans in the Tavern don’t seem too bothered by the Alisson news as their opinions on the ‘keeper seem to have radically changed.
