Liverpool's hopes of signing Alisson are fast extinguishing.
The Brazilian has long been touted as a Liverpool target, but he'll come at a cost.
Desperate to avoid another Mohamed Salah situation, Roma are demanding an eye-watering €80 million for their stopper.
To make matters even worse, Real Madrid are also interested, and many believe that he prefers a move to Spain rather than England.
Liverpool are also believed to be interested in Jan Oblak, but he too will come at a similar price than Alisson.
So with both of their top targets seemingly unavailable, who will Liverpool target?
A number of alternatives have been suggested, including Jack Butland.
But the Mirror believe that Liverpool are 'stepping up' their interest in Burnley stopper, Nick Pope.
The former Charlton man started off the season as back-up to Tom Heaton, but impressed massively after Heaton suffered a season ending injury.
He was eventually named the Clarets’ fans and players’ player of the season, and was further rewarded for his form with a place in Gareth Southgate's World Cup squad.
Liverpool are said to be 'keen' to find out more about Pope’s personality and mentality ahead of a potential move, and have been building up their information on Pope with a series of background checks on the 26-year old.
He will certainly come as a cheaper option than other names being linked, with the Mirror suggesting he would be available for £18m.
But what do Liverpool fans think?
It seems they are actually mixed.
Some believe he would be a good signing, having shown himself to be a quality goalkeeper in his debut season in the Premier League.
Although he would probably be an upgrade on Loris Karius, some still want a world-class goalkeeper in the mould of either Oblak or Alisson.
Many believe that Pope's lack of experience at the top level means he isn't ready for the big move.
