Chelsea still in for Alisson

Chelsea are still well in the race with Liverpool for Roma goalkeeper Alisson Becker, amid reports Real Madrid will sign Thibaut Courtois.

There were reports today in Italy that Liverpool had offered €60m plus €10m in bonuses for Alisson, which is practically at the €75m asking price.

However, Sky Sports UK insist there has been no bid from Anfield.

On top of that, RMC in France suggest Real Madrid have agreed a €35m transfer fee for Belgium international Courtois.

This would fee the Stamford Bridge side up to get Alisson, especially as Maurizio Sarri always wants a goalkeeper who is good with his feet to start moves from the back and there are few better in that sense than the Brazilian.

With the Courtois cash, Chelsea could dive in with the full €70m for Alisson.
