Chelsea’s goalkeeping situation is very concerning, and it seems as though most fans recognise that. Thibaut Courtois’ contract at the club expires at the end of next season, and with no renewal in sight, that’s a real problem for Chelsea. As one of Europe’s best goalkeepers, it would be a disaster for the club to lose him.
Unfortunately, though, it appears as though Chelsea’s problems in this regard are going from bad to worse.
Of course, the Blues likely wouldn’t be keen on him in any other instance, but the uncertainty surrounding Thibaut Courtois’ future is a major worry for the club.
Alisson, for his part, would be a good fit under Maurizio Sarri. He’s comfortable with the ball at his feet, and so he’d play a sweeper-keeper role at Chelsea like Ederson at Man City. Alas, though, it seems unlikely at this point that the Blues will get their man. That could always change, though, of course.
Naturally, Chelsea fans have been quick to respond to the news, and it’ss fair to say that they are very worried indeed. They don’t want to lose out on him. Take a look at what they’ve had to say below…
I hope we do a Manchester City-Jorginho masterclass again except if TBO is not leaving again pic.twitter.com/iQz5MZNgUX

#Chelsea are screwed if #Alisson #Becker ends up signing for Liverpool. There aren't better goalkeeper than Alisson in the market. Thibaut #Courtois is leaving the club ➕ he isn't good enough to play in Maurizio #Sarri's system. #CFC #PL

Alisson is way too overrated. BUT there are no better keepers available in the market at the moment. LFC have made a bid for him today. #CFC

We are in real mess. Give courtois what he wants or pay the damn money for alisson otherwise we will end up with some bum. #cfc

I just want Golovin & Alisson wrapped up ASAP then I can relax & enjoy the rest of the transfer window. Couldn’t care less if we sign Rugani/Higuain. A RB (Meunier/Vrsaljko), winger (Pulisic/Martial) & anything else is a bonus #CFC #ChelseaFC

Chelsea have to move for @Alissonbecker , we need him! @thibautcourtois will surely going to @realmadrid and we need the best of the moment ! Sell #Hazard 190M € and Courtois 40M € and pay #Alisson #Golovin #Suso and #Pulisic if possible!
