It is claimed that Chelsea have made an offer of €60m for Roma goalkeeper Alisson.
The Brazilian shot-stopper, who is expected to be his country’s number one at this summer’s World Cup, has seen his stock rise dramatically after an impressive season with the Giallorossi.
He has been heavily linked with Real Madrid and Liverpool in recent times, with both of the Champions League finalists thought to be in the market for new goalkeepers.
However, according to Pagine Romaniste, it is the Reds’ English Premier League rivals Chelsea who have made the first official offer for the 25-year-old.
It is thought that the Blues have made a bid of €60m for the player, while they would offer Alisson wages of €4.5m a season.
According to the report, though, it is highly unlikely that sporting director Monchi will accept the offer.
Instead, Roma will wait until after the World Cup before considering doing business – by which time Alisson’s performances at the tournament will hopefully have increased his value still further.
