Saudi Pro League side Al-Nassr are reportedly ‘very interested’ in Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson.
The custodian is ‘tempted’ by the possibility of a move to the country where Jordan Henderson, Fabinho, and Roberto Firmino have relocated this summer.
Al-Nassr, who already have Alisson’s former Reds team-mate Sadio Mane as well as Cristiano Ronaldo, were disappointed in their current goalkeeper’s performance after their 2-1 defeat to Steven Gerrard’s Al-Ettifaq.
They could now seek to replace current custodian Nawaf Al-Aqidi with the 30-year-old Brazilian, according to Footmercato.
Losing his long-time first-choice goalkeeper would be the last thing Jurgen Klopp needs this summer after Saudi sides unexpectedly came calling for Henderson and Fabinho – and succeeded in tempting them away from the Premier League.

Liverpool had already released Firmino, who scored a hat-trick on his debut for Al-Ahli on Friday.
While Liverpool have at least had some time and squad depth to cope with those departures, losing a world-class goalkeeper is a different game entirely.
Not many ‘keepers in the world can match Alisson for reflexes, command, or distribution.
Were he to leave, Liverpool would be left with the highly rated Caoimhin Kelleher as his replacement but would arguably have to assess their options in the transfer market.
