Roma's Doni 'happy to join Liverpool'

Roma goalkeeper Alexander Doni's agent has confirmed “talks with Liverpool. Doni would be very happy to join Liverpool.”

The Brazilian shot-stopper, who in the last two years has been first, second and even third choice at the Olimpico, is available for around £1m.

“I spoke to the club [Roma] yesterday [Tuesday] and they confirmed they are holding talks with Liverpool to reach an agreement regarding the transfer of Doni,” agent Ovidio Colucci told The Guardian.

“Once an agreement is reached between 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 shot-stopper had been benched under Claudio Ranieri in favour of Julio Sergio, but when Vincenzo Montella took over mid-season his first move was to reinstate Doni.

The 31-year-old has been at Roma since moving from Juventude in 2005 and his contract expires in June 2012.
