Roma goalkeeper Alisson Becker is believed to be on the radar of Chelsea, who could sell Thibaut Courtois to Real Madrid to pave the way for the Brazilian's arrival.

Roma goalkeeper Alisson Becker has emerged as a transfer target for Chelsea, according to a report.

The Brazil international is believed to be on the radar of Europe's top sides following an impressive season between the sticks for the Giallorossi.

Meanwhile, Blues custodian Thibaut Courtois has made no secret of the fact that his "heart" is in Madrid, as his children live there.

According to Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport, Chelsea are aware that Real Madrid are interested in both goalkeepers, and could strike a deal to send Courtois to the Bernabeu, paving the way for Alisson to join the Stamford Bridge side.

The report also states that Maurizio Sarri, who is thought to be on the verge of joining the West Londoners, rates Alisson very highly, having seen the 25-year-old in action when Napoli took on Roma in Serie A.

Liverpool are also credited with an interest in Alisson but they are now believed to have switched their sights to Thomas Strakosha, who plays for Roma's bitter city rivals Lazio.
