Chelsea FC will look to target Alisson Becker if Thibaut Courtois leaves Stamford Bridge this summer, according to a report in England.

Website Football.London is reporting that the Blues are looking at the Brazil international as a favorable candidate to fill Courtois’ boots should the Belgian force through a move.

The same article states that Courtois has made it clear to the FA Cup winners that he wants to return to the Spanish capital to reunite with his two children in Madrid.

According to the same story, the Blues won’t resume negotiations with the Belgium international over a new deal for at least another week following his participation in the World Cup.

Courtois, who was unable to prevent Belgium from suffering a 1-0 loss to France in the World Cup semi-finals on Tuesday, has less than 12 months to run on his current deal.

The Blues will face competition for Alisson given both Liverpool FC and Real Madrid are thought to be interested in the Brazil number one.

Chelsea don’t have Champions League football to offer the South American shot stopper unlike Liverpool FC and Real Madrid after their fifth-placed finish last term.

The Blues won the FA Cup thanks to a 1-0 win over Manchester United back in May.
