Roma goalkeeper Alisson's agent fuels talk of imminent move

Should they beat Liverpool to Alisson's signature, it will spell the end for Thibaut Courtois at Stamford Bridge.

The Champions League winners have held talks with Chelsea over a move for Courtois, who has just one year left on his contract - the Blues are willing to sell this summer rather than risk losing him on a free in 12 months time. Real Madrid, another possible suitor, have yet to make contact with Roma.

A €70m deal would make Alisson the most expensive goalkeeper of all time, smashing the €39m Manchester City paid Benfica for Ederson - Alisson's back-up in the Brazil squad - previous year.

The agent of Roma goalkeeper Alisson has got fans very excited by "liking" an Instagram post suggesting the Brazilian will choose to join Liverpool over Chelsea.

If reports are to be believed, the Reds have lodged a bid north of £60 million with the Italians.

Another Brazil worldwide in Liverpool's sights is midfielder Bernard, who is also wanted by Arsenal and Everton. Tentative inquiries in January were also dismissed.

Liverpool's pre-season is already underway, with regular keeper Loris Karius featuring in their friendly games, but the German is known to be error-prone.

The 25-year-old stopper started his career with Internacional in Brazil before moving to Roma two years ago. He was named in last season's UEFA Champions League squad of the season.

But sources in Italy claim that Alisson has indicated that Liverpool is his preferred destination and it would appear now that an agreement on the fee between the clubs is edging closer.
