Sky Sport: Doyen set to purchase Alisson, Juve and Roma duel for the player

Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky Sport has released an update today regarding the future of Internacional goalkeeper Alisson.

Reportedly, the investment firm Doyen is set to purchase the rights to Alisson for €9 million and plan on leaving the player at the Brazilian outfit until June 2017. At that point, Juventus would like to buy the goalkeeper outright. However, Alisson would prefer a club where he would be a starter, something that is unlikely at Juve given the presence of Gianluigi Buffon, and the player has yet to say “yes” to the Bianconeri. Given this, Roma are optimistic that a potential deal could be struck, however, the Giallorossi have presented a lower offer than Juventus to Internacional.

With an eye towards Italy, Alisson seems to be between Roma and Juventus.
