According to reports in Italy, Premier League club Chelsea and AS Roma have reportedly agreed a fee in the region of €73 million ($85,394,597.00) for Alisson.
The report is according to Centro Suono Sport, that claims Chelsea have agreed to meet the Serie A’s €73 ($85,394,597.00) club asking for the Brazilian goalkeeper. The deal for Alisson, according to reports, would be an initial €65 million up front with a further €8 million in bonuses.
The goalkeeper himself, as reportedly accepted a €5.5m contract offer from Chelsea, as he prepares to replace Belgian goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois at Stamford Bridge this summer.
The duo of Real Madrid and Liverpool were also in the race to sign the goalkeeper this summer, but Chelsea appears to have win the race for his signing this summer.
Although, there’ve been earlier report that the goalkeeper would prefer joining Chelsea this summer, but as it stands, the Blues have stolen the march on their rivals in the transfer market.
Chelsea are looking to a goalkeeper to replace Courtois this summer, who has once again been linked with a move back to Spain this summer but there’s no yet club credited with interest in the goalkeeper.
The goalkeeper wants a return back to Spain so he can link up with his children, with his former Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid believed set to lock horns over his signing this summer.
With Chelsea agreeing €65 million up front with a further €8 million in bonuses, this would surpass the Blues €13,00m paid for the signing of Petr Cech from Ligue 1 club Stade Rennais in 04/05.
