Chelsea FC could do business with Liverpool FC over the potential sale of Thibaut Courtois, Vinny O’Connor has claimed.

Liverpool FC have been consistently linked with a potential move to sign AS Roma goalkeeper Alisson Becker this summer.

However, the Rome outfit are thought to be reluctant to sell the Brazil international in the current transfer window.

Indeed, AS Roma are demanding in excess of £80m for the South American shot stopper, who started his career at Brazilian side Internacional.

As a result, Liverpool FC could be forced to look at other options in the summer transfer window if AS Roma refuse to sell Alisson.

Courtois has 12 months left on his current deal at the west London side and has reportedly set his sights on a move to Real Madrid.

However, Los Blancos are thought to be keen on AS Roma’s Alisson if Real Madrid can’t sign Manchester United number one David De Gea.

Courtois could be forced to look at an alternative destination with some reports suggesting a Liverpool FC bid could be on the cards.

Sky Sports News reporter O’Connor hinted that Courtois could move to Liverpool FC if Chelsea FC are willing to strike a deal.

“This is an interesting one. He is linked with Real Madrid,” O’Connor told the Transfer Talk podcast.

“Chelsea are looking to get a fee for him before he is out of contract. If Alisson going to Real Madrid, would Liverpool look at Courtois?

“It’s whether Chelsea would look to do business with Liverpool [or not].”
