Roma have been impressed with Sami Hyypia's tremendous performances in the UEFA Champions League.

The Liverpool stopper was in superb form during his side's goalless draw at Juventus that clinched a semi-final spot with Chelsea in Europe's premier competition.

Watching representatives from the Giallorossi were so enthusiastic about the Finland international's qualities that they may consider a summer bid for the Reds defender.

Liverpool have rejected all talk of Sami Hyypia possibly moving to Roma.

The giant defender was immense at the back for The Reds in their UEFA Champions League draw in Juventus, which had reportedly attracted the attentions of Roma.

Reports have later suggested a £3 million offer could be forthcoming from the Italian side.

Hyypia's current deal expires in 2006, and Rafa Benitez has recently opted to play Mauricio Pellegrino at centre half, leaving Hyypia on the bench.

I can't see him leaving to be honest. He played superb in Turin and has been great for them for a number of years now. Liverpool are saying that no contact has been made whatsoever and its most prob just hype from the papers again..

I don't think he will leave, they have been unlucky with injuries this season. If they get everyone back fit and make a couple of signings they will be right up there next season. So why should he leave?

Hyypia's legs are winding down now but he can still do a great job for us. He'll probably be more of a squad player for us next year though, but he's going nowhere...

I can only see him going if he thinks he couldn't cope with the pace of the Prem. Otherwise there wouldn't be any point.

yer, hyppia aint the fast defender, and like John says, if hes loses a bit more pace it might reduce him to be a squad player,

am thinking though, pellegrino aint that quick either, do you think a centre back with a bit more pace might be needed?

I think they need someone younger to come in and learn from the players they have. Suprised they didn't go in for Dawson or Davenport when they were available.
