Alisson remains Saudi Pro League's 'top target' despite Ederson negotiations

Saudi Pro League side Al Nassr are still desperate to sign Alisson this summer and would prefer the Liverpool goalkeeper over Manchester City stopper Ederson. 

Liverpool's Brazilian has been linked with a lucrative move to Saudi Arabia in recent months, although it's been reported that he will turn down any advances in favour of continuing on Merseyside.

He is not the only Red linked with a move to the Middle East. Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk have both interested Saudi clubs, with their contracts set to expire in 2025.

After Alisson had given no indications of wanting a Saudi switch, the Pro League turned to Manchester City's Ederson, who is reportedly open to the move should the right proposal come along.

However, Alisson remains the league's 'top target' in terms of goalkeepers.


According to a report from TEAMtalk, Alisson is still firmly on Saudi Arabia's wishlist, despite the fact that Al Nassr have reportedly already agreed personal terms with Man City's Ederson.

Man City supposedly want £42m to let Ederson leave this summer but that's a price tag that Al Nassr are unwilling to meet.

While they hope to lower the fee in negotiations with the Cityzens, Al Nassr are planning on contacting Alisson once again to see if he has changed his mind on a move to Asia.

With Alisson now out of the Copa America with Brazil, they are ready to 'forcefully' revive their interest.

It seems unlikely that Alisson will have changed his mind on a move to Saudi Arabia, but, of course, it can't be ruled out.

However, given Al Nassr are unwilling to spend £42m on Ederson, they have little hope of being able to sign Alisson.

There is simply no way that the Reds would let their first-choice stopper leave for less than that sum, with Liverpool having zero interest in letting their star goalkeeper go at all.

The 31-year-old remains one of the best goalkeepers in world football - if not the best - and the only way he is leaving Anfield this summer is if he forces an exit, which seems extremely unlikely.
