Liverpool are not interested in signing Southampton goalkeeper Alex McCarthy this summer, according to Goal.

Loris Karius started in the Champions League final last month following an impressive second half of the 2017-18 season.

The Reds have been linked with Alisson Becker but AS Roma are proving hard to deal with as they're demanding a huge fee after being criticised for selling Mohamed Salah too cheaply last summer.

The same article states that the Merseyside outfit are set to be priced out of the deal to sign Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak.

The German shot stopper made two mistakes in a 3-1 loss to Spanish giants Real Madrid in the Champions League showpiece.

The newspaper says Liverpool will refuse to pay that kind of money as it would double the current world record fee for a goalkeeper so Klopp is being forced to look at alternative targets.

The Costa Rican nearly moved to Manchester United as part of the move that would have taken de Gea to Madrid back in 2015, and is likely to want to quit the club if the deal finally happens this summer.

"Yes, he asked me about Liverpool and I hope he can come here, but I know he has other proposals", Firmino said.

He said: "Every once in a while, I give him a pinch to come to Liverpool to helps us and such, but it's with his agents. It would not hurt if he came to Liverpool".

"It wouldn't be bad if he came to Liverpool".

Firmino is now with the Brazil squad and according to the man himself, he's been trying to nudge Alisson in the direction of joining Liverpool.
