Should they beat Liverpool to Alisson's signature, it will spell the end for Thibaut Courtois at Stamford Bridge. Real Madrid, another possible suitor, have yet to make contact with Roma.

Sky sources had previously indicated Liverpool had no plans to bid for Alisson this summer, but that was earlier in the window when the Premier League believed the Brazil global was going to Real Madrid.

Liverpool had been deterred from pursing that interest at the start of the summer by Roma's asking price. On-going concerns over Karius' form, however, plus the prospect of a compromise with the Italian club, has prompted a renewed effort to land Klopp's first choice. He was named in last season's UEFA Champions League squad of the season.
