Premier League giants, Chelsea have agreed personal terms with Roma goalkeeper, Alisson Ramses Becker, known as Alisson, ahead of Real Madrid.

The Brazilian star is still licking his wounds following the countries World Cup exit at the hands of Belgium on Friday night but his attention is already turning to his club future.

Dave Maddock actually reports that Loris Karius will be Jürgen Klopp's no.1 again next season despite his woeful display against Real Madrid in the Champions League final.

"I do not think about anything right now other than the World Cup", Courtois told Spanish radio station Onda Cero on their Radioestadio show.

Sky Sports News reporter Sheth claimed that Chelsea FC will look to sign Alisson if Courtois does secure his move away from Stamford Bridge.

Thibaut Courtois has been on the radar of Real Madrid for just about a year now and his current contract situation at Chelsea coupled with Blues' recent disappointment on and off the pitch makes this an interesting transfer saga to keep an eye out for in the summer.

Alisson is now with Brazil's World Cup squad in Russian Federation who are preparing for their quarter-final against Belgium on Friday. The Belgian shot-stopper is now entering his final year with Chelsea and is yet to sign an extension with the club, while also commenting that he will be evaluating his options after the World Cup before making a decision on his future.

Club president Florentino Perez has identified Chelsea's Eden Hazard as his number one transfer target should the Portuguese forward leave but he could look to sign a centre-forward too, with Icardi and Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowsi thought to be top of his wish list.
