Saudi Pro League side Al-Nassr are reportedly 'very interested' in Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson.

The Brazilian is 'tempted' by the possibility of a move to the country where Jordan Henderson, Fabinho, and Roberto Firmino have relocated this summer, according to reports.

Al-Nassr, who already have Alisson's former Reds team-mate Sadio Mane as well as Cristiano Ronaldo in their ranks, were disappointed in their current goalkeeper's performance after their 2-1 defeat to Steven Gerrard's Al-Ettifaq on Monday.

They could now seek to replace 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 Saudi Pro League side Al-Ahli on Friday. 

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. 

Klopp has already missed out on two of his main midfield targets to Chelsea in Moises Caicedo and Romeo Lavia.

Alisson, who has made 232 appearances since joining Liverpool for £65m in 2018, could become the latest household name to move to Saudi Arabia if he does decide to depart Anfield.

As well as former Liverpool team-mates Mane, Henderson and Firmino, Neymar is among the other stars to join the Saudi Pro League.

Neymar on Tuesday completed his £78m switch to Al-Hilal.

Neymar has left PSG after agreeing a two-year deal with the PIF-backed club, one that is understood to be worth £130million a year. 

Al-Hilal also made a world record offer of £259m for PSG superstar Kylian Mbappe, who rejected the move despite his poor relations with the French club.

The Saudi side have spent big this summer on the likes of Ruben Neves from Wolves, Kalidou Koulibaly from Chelsea, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic from Lazio and Malcom from Zenit St Petersburg.

Al-Nassr have also signed the likes of former Manchester United full-back Alex Telles and Croatian midfielder Marcelo Brozovic.

Al-Hilal were defeated 2-1 by Ronaldo's Al-Nassr in the final of the Arab Club Champions Cup on Saturday, having finished third in the league last season.
