After Brazil's friendly victory against Austria, Alisson Becker talked about his future and the rumors of the transfer market.
With Liverpool's efforts to sign Alisson from Roma likely to be of no avail, it seems they are turning their attention elsewhere as they go in search of a new goalkeeper.
The Roma custodian wants his future sorted out before the start of the World Cup, enabling him to give Brazil his fullest commitment and concentration.
"I believe and I hope that everything will be resolved before the start of the World Cup", Alisson said."To be honest, I left everything in the hands of my agents". "We'll see if something happens during this week".

The Giallorosso are reluctant to do business, though Alisson stated yesterday he was eager to get his situation settled before the World Cup kicks off.
Taffarel, Brazil's goalkeeping coach, says Alisson is more than happy to remain in Rome next season, and he would also be delighted if he does not switch clubs.
Liverpool fans have already experienced disappointment during this summer's transfer window, following Nabil Fekir's failed move to Anfield, so the signing of Alisson would be a much needed morale boost for the club and its fans.
"I don't really like making lists of who is the best, but as far as I'm concerned, he's one of the best in the world, together with [Manuel] Neuer, who I've always liked and is getting back now, and [David] De Gea, [Thibaut] Courtois".
