Brazil and AS Roma goalie Alisson Becker is becoming one of the most wanted goalkeepers at the ongoing transfer window as Chelsea join the queue for his signature.

The netminder was in fine form for Roma during the previous campaign and he is also doing well with the Sambar boys at the ongoing FIFA World Cup in Russia, helping his country to a 2-0 victory over Serbia to progress to the next round of the competition.

It is no longer news that Liverpool, Real Madrid and Arsenal — before they complete Leno’s move — are been linked with his signature. The 25-year-old netminder is still getting Liverpool and Madrid’s attention as both clubs are yet to find a perfect and long-term solution to their goalkeeping crisis.

Having signed Bayer Leverkusen glovesman, Arsenal have cooled their interest in him.

Despite Arsenal’s decision to pull out of his race, there are quite a number of clubs interested in him as the Blues seems to have joined the race to capture his services ahead of the upcoming season.

According to Marca, the Blues, who are uncertain about Courtois future at Stamford Bridge, are ready to rival Real Madrid and Liverpool for the impressive goaltender.

The media outlet further claimed that the West London outfits are leading the race as they are willing to offer £62million (€70m) to the Serie A side this summer so as to convince them to let go of the netminder.
