Liverpool move for Doni, claims agent
Liverpool are in talks with Roma to sign Brazilian goalkeeper Alexander Doni, according to the players agent.
Doni, who is under contract with the Serie A club for a further season, has been strongly linked with a move away from the Eternal City this summer.
"I spoke to the club (Roma) yesterday and they confirmed they are holding talks with Liverpool to reach an agreement regarding the transfer of Doni," Doni4s agent Ovidio Colucci told Press Association Sport.
"Once an agreement is reached betwen the two clubs, we will begin negotiating personal terms with Liverpool.
"Doni would be very happy to join Liverpool and play in the Premier League."
The 31-year-old joined Roma in 2005 from Brazilian side Juventude.
The South American has been an understudy to Julio Sergio in recent seasons, and made 16 league appearances for Roma this term.
