Liverpool have been searching for an experienced keeper to provide competition for Pepe Reina and Doni's representative has confirmed transfer talks are at an advanced stage.

Doni, who is under contract with the Roma for a further season, has been strongly linked with a move away from the Stadio Olimpico this summer and could be heading to Anfield.

"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,'' Ovidio Colucci said.

"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. He has been an understudy to Giallorossi goalkepeer Julio Sergio in recent seasons, and made 16 league appearances for Roma this term.
