Chelsea stump up for Alisson?

Chelsea are reportedly prepared to meet Roma’s €70m asking price for Alisson, moving ahead of Liverpool and Real Madrid.

The Brazilian is one of the most sought-after goalkeepers in Europe, but the Giallorossi won’t let him go on the cheap.

Sporting director Monchi insisted yesterday that no offers have arrived, but both Real Madrid and Liverpool are thought to be keen.

Now though Marca is reporting that Chelsea are ready to meet the €70m asking price, having already held discussions last week.

Thibaut Courtois looks set to leave Stamford Bridge, so Alisson would be his replacement.
