Chelsea FC are prepared to sell Thibaut Courtois and sign Liverpool FC target Alisson Becker, according to a report in Italy.

Italian football website Gianlucadimarzio.com, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that Chelsea FC are ready to cash in on the Belgium international in the summer transfer window.

Courtois has proven reluctant to sign a new deal with less than 12 months remaining on his current contract amid interest from La Liga giants Real Madrid.

The same article states that the Blues want to sign Brazil international Alisson as their new number one goalkeeper despite interest from their rivals Liverpool FC.

According to the same story, Chelsea FC have already made contact with the 25-year-old about a potential deal after Courtois made it clear that his time is up at Stamford Bridge.

Liverpool FC are in the market to sign a new goalkeeper following Loris Karius’ disappointing performance in the Champions League final last weekend.

The German shot stopper made two big mistakes in Liverpool FC’s 3-1 loss to La Liga giants Real Madrid in Kiev.

Liverpool FC finished in fourth place ahead of Chelsea FC in the 2017-18 season to secure a Champions League spot at the expense of the west London side.
