A report claims that Alisson Becker is to join Chelsea from Roma in a deal worth up to £64.5m, paving the way for Thibaut Courtois to sign for Real Madrid.

Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson Becker is on his way to Chelsea after the Blues agreed to meet Roma's £64.5m valuation, according to a report.

The 25-year-old, strongly linked with Liverpool and Real Madrid earlier in the transfer window, is currently in Russia on World Cup duty with the Selecao.

Liverpool are understood to have been priced out of a move, while European champions Madrid have held off from making a formal offer as they also have their eyes on Thibaut Courtois.

Italian outlet Centro Suono Sport claims that Chelsea are now expected to get a deal over the line for Alisson, as they have offered to pay around £57.5m upfront and £7m in bonuses.

Alisson has already agreed personal terms with the Premier League club, it is claimed, potentially paving the way for current number one Courtois to finalise a switch to Madrid.
