Chelsea FC are lining up a £65m bid to try and sign Alisson from AS Roma this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mail is reporting that the west London side are looking to try and bring the Brazilian shot-stopper to Stamford Bridge this summer as they look to try and bolster their options between the posts ahead of next season.

The same report says that the Brazilian goalkeeper has been attracting interest from both Liverpool FC and Real Madrid this summer, but Chelsea FC are now looking to wrap up a deal for the shot-stopper.

According to the same story though, Real Madrid are now preparing to try and bring Chelsea FC goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois to the Bernabeu this summer.

Chelsea FC are yet to sign any new players this summer as they look to try and build a squad at least capable of breaking back into the top four next season.

The west London side finished in fifth place in the Premier League table last season as they missed out on Champions League qualification in Antonio Conte’s second campaign in charge.

The Blues did, however, end the campaign on a positive note by beating Chelsea FC in the FA Cup final at Wembley back in May.
