Cape Town - AS Roma sporting director Monchi says the club is yet to receive any offers for in-demand Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson Becker.

Alisson, who was his country's first-choice goalkeeper at the World Cup in Russia, is said to have attracted the attention of European giants Liverpool and Real Madrid.

However, the Roma sporting director stated that his club have had no contact over a proposed move for the 25-year-old goal minder.

He insisted that Alisson will be resting after his country's elimination from the World Cup and will later join Roma for their preparations ahead of the new season.

Mochi told reporters: "The same chance that (Kostas) Manolas, (Edin) Dzeko and (Lorenzo) Pellegrini have of leaving.

"The same chance as anyone who we haven't had offers for. I know you don't believe me, but I haven't had any offers.

"If some were to arrive - and this applies to any other player - we'd evaluate them and then make a decision.

"Right now, though we think he should rest after the World Cup, then come back here and have just as important a season as the last one."
