Chelsea are close to signing Alisson after agreeing personal terms with the Roma goalkeeper, reports claim.
Thibaut Courtois who has just one year left on his Chelsea contract, has been linked with a Chelsea exit after delaying to sign a new contract and the Blues are keen to replace the Belgian goalkeeper with Alisson.
Metro UK claim Alisson would prefer to join Chelsea, rather than stay in Rome, and has been offered a contract worth just under £100,000 a week. However, Roma are reportedly demanding a fee of €75 million (£66million) for Alisson.
However, Alisson’s agent Ze Maria Neis told Tele Radio Stereo that a deal won’t happen until after the World Cup.
He said: “Nothing will happen in the next few days.
“Alisson is 100 per cent focused on the World Cup.”
