Chelsea and Roma have reportedly agreed a fee in the region of €73 million for Alisson.
According to reports from Centro Suono Sport, the Blues have agreed to meet Roma’s asking price for the player.
The fee is said to be €65 million up front with a further €8 million in bonuses.
The player has already accepted a €5.5m contract offer from the club, as he prepares to replace Thibaut Courtois at Stamford Bridge.
Real Madrid and Liverpool have both been heavily linked with a move for Alisson, who enjoyed a standout season for Roma last time out.
Some reports have suggested Spain would be his preferred destination, but Chelsea appear to have stolen the march on their rivals in the transfer market.
Chelsea are looking for a replacement for Courtois, who is once again talking up a summer move to Spain.
Courtois is keen to return to Spain to be closer to his children, with Real Madrid or Atletico Madrid the likely contenders to sign the Belgian international.
CHELSEA AGREE €60M DEAL TO SIGN HIGUAIN
Chelsea and Juventus have reportedly agreed a €60 million fee in a deal for Gonzalo Higuain.
Reports in Italy from Sport Mediaset, as cited on the Metro, claim that the deal would be pending the arrival of Maurizio Sarri, who is expected to replace Antonio Conte in the coming days.
Higuain has been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge since the summer window opened, as Chelsea go in search of a replacement for Alvaro Morata.
The latter struggled during his first season in London and is said to be keen on a move back to Italy.
Juventus themselves are ready to sell Higuain this summer and could move for Morata if the price is right.
Sarri is a huge fan of Higuain and the pair worked well together during their time in Naples.
The Old Lady have also been linked with an eye-catching €100 million move for Cristiano Ronaldo in recent days, but it is yet to be seen how Higuain’s future will affect that.
