Clearly, she saw the amusing side of having a famous namesake, sparking wild celebrations for many Reds fans online before someone pointed out the stark difference between Alisson and Alison.

Liverpool's opening offer of £62m for Alisson would make him the world's costliest goalkeeper but the Serie A giants are holding out for closer to £66m.

He has a year left on his contract and is wanted by Real Madrid.

News of the bid comes after current goalkeeper Loris Karius made another high-profile mistake last week, the 25-year-old German keeper failed to hold onto a free-kick which resulted in a goal for Tranmere as Liverpool beat Merseyside rivals Tranmere Rovers 3-2 at Prenton Park.

On Tuesday, reports emerged that a huge €70 million (£62,2m) bid had been submitted to Roma to sign Alisson Becker.

Alisson has always been Jurgen Klopp's preferred solution for the problematic goalkeeping position at Liverpool, with the manager's interest pre-dating Loris Karius' calamitous performance against Real Madrid in the Champions League final.
