Maurizio Sarri wants Chelsea to rival Liverpool and Real Madrid in the race to sign Brazil goalkeeper Alisson, reports say.

Having developed into one of the most highly-rated shot-stoppers in the world since signing for Roma in 2016, Alisson is expected to secure a big-money move this summer.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is a known admirer of Alisson and will look to sign a new number one after Loris Karius shocking performance in last months Champions League final.

Real Madrid are in pole position to strike a deal for Alisson, however, and reports in Spain say the La Liga giants will look to sign the 25-year-old on a five-year deal.

But there could yet be a twist as Gazzetta dello Sport say Premier League club Chelsea are ready to enter the race for Alisson.

The Blues, who won the FA Cup last month, are reportedly set to replace Antonio Conte with Maurizio Sarri and the former Napoli manager is a huge fan of Alisson.

Chelseas current number one is Thibaut Courtois but reports in Italy say he does not intend to sign a contract extension with his current deal set to expire next summer.

The Belgium goalkeeper spent three years at Atletico Madrid and is said to be keen on a return to the Spanish capital if Real express interest in completing a deal.

Despite winning the FA Cup, Chelsea endured a frustrating campaign, finishing outside of the top four a year after winning the Premier League title.
