Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson is reportedly set for talks with the Saudi Pro League over a possible move away from Anfield.

The 31-year-old joined the Reds from Roma in 2018, becoming the most-expensive goalkeeper of all-time for a brief period before Kepa Arrizabalaga moved to Chelsea. During his six years on Merseyside, Alisson has won the Champions League, Premier League, Carabao Cup, FA Cup and Club World Cup among other honours.

Alisson signed a contract extension in 2021, but according to TEAMtalk, the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia (PIF), who own the big four clubs in their Pro League, are set to approach Alisson for talks and to see if his stance has changed after they spoke to him earlier this year. It comes as his Brazilian compatriot Ederson has been linked with a move to the Middle East, with personal terms said to be agreed with the Manchester City star.

The team chasing Alisson is reported to be Al-Nassr, who have made him their priority transfer target this summer. The Saudi side, captained by Cristiano Ronaldo, also boasts ex-Liverpool forward Sadio Mane among their ranks, and finished last season in second, 14 points behind league winners Al-Hilal.

Alisson has three years left on his contract at Liverpool, and he made 32 appearances for the Reds last season, keeping 11 clean sheets in all competitions. Having been knocked out of the Copa America over the weekend - with Brazil losing on penalties to Uruguay in the quarter-final - he is set to enjoy an extended break from first-team football before joining up with Slot's squad later in pre-season.
