Alisson makes decision amid Chelsea interest - agreement close

Alisson makes decision amid Chelsea interest - agreement close

Courtois's time at Chelsea could be up in the Blues land Alisson.

Ze Maria Neis' own Instagram page is littered of pictures of himself with Alisson, while he is followed by the Brazilian's verified account.

Per Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol, Chelsea are also set to lose their goalkeeper with Thibaut Courtois set to join Real Madrid.

It seems things have got serious as the Liverpool Echo are one of several media outlets reporting today that Liverpool have now submitted an official offer for Alisson's signature worth £53m up front with a further £9m coming in performance based add ons.

Liverpool signed Mohamed Salah from Roma last season but despite the good relationship the clubs enjoy the Italian club would not hesitate to sell Alisson to any other club that matches their valuation.

The Reds are believed to have submitted a world-record bid for the Brazilian global as they look to finally remedy their long-standing goalkeeping woes.

It's reported that the Merseysiders have stepped up their pursuit of the 25-year-old after rumours of their interest swirled throughout the transfer window.

"The winger is a free agent following the expiration of his contract with Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk and is reportedly keen to move to the Premier League", says the paper. So many observers have suggested Karius was not up to the job of being first choice keeper for the club and that decision came back to bite him.

The 25 year old has made over 60 appearances for Roma since joining in 2016, as well as 31 caps for Brazil.
