Sky Sport Italia confirm Liverpool offered €70m for Alisson Becker, but Roma want €80m and Chelsea are ready to dive in with funds from a double Real Madrid sale.
According to Gianluca Di Marzio, the proposal has been formulated and is worth €60m plus another €10m in fairly easy to achieve bonuses.
Roma continue to push for €65m plus another €15m in bonuses.
Liverpool could conclude the deal within a couple of days, but they will have to hurry, because the situation is changing.
Sky Italia note that Chelsea are in advanced talks to sell both Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois to Real Madrid.
That double deal would raise funds for an Alisson swoop and Roma are more than happy to wait for a bidding war to break out.
