Real Madrid are reportedly refusing to give up on the idea of signing Belgian superstar Eden Hazard from Chelsea this summer, but equally the Premier League side are said to be increasingly digging their heels to prevent their best player from leaving.
And Chelsea may have already found their replacement for Courtois.
Chelsea are set to suffer a double blow less than four weeks before the start of the new season as Real Madrid close in on two of the club's star players.
Chelsea have not had any choice but to negotiate with Madrid, given Courtois has just one year left on his deal and does not want to renew it, despite numerous offers from the London club.
"Liverpool have made big move for other Chelsea target Alisson", Solhekol tweeted.
It's been reported by Kaveh Solhekol from Sky Sports that the FA Cup winners are considering signing Cech for a second time.
The Daily Telegraph, meanwhile, say Chelsea are ready to reject approaches from Real and Barcelona for Hazard but may tell Courtois, who has also been linked with Real, that he can go, after the keeper suggested he is worth more than the £200,000-a-week contract he has been offered.
The 26-year-old is into the final 12 months of his contract at Chelsea and has always been a reported target for Real Madrid, with his former partner and two children living in the Spanish capital.
"After six wonderful years at Chelsea, it might be time to discover something different". They have, though, recently recruited Bernd Leno, who will likely take up the number one spot.
"He is a player who has maturity and a lot of leadership".
"Certainly, after this World Cup, I can decide if I want to stay or go, but Chelsea will have the final decision".
