The Brazilian is ‘tempted’ by the possibility of a move to the country Jordan Henderson, Fabinho and Roberto Firmino moved to in the summer, according to reports.
Al-Nassr, who already have Alisson’s former team-mate Sadio Mane as well as Cristiano Ronaldo in their ranks, were disappointed with the performance of their current keeper. after their 2-1 loss to Steven Gerrard’s Al-Ettifaq Monday.
They could now look to replace Nawaf Al-Aqidi with the 30-year-old Brazilian, according to Footmercato.

Al-Nassr reportedly ‘very interested’ in signing Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson this summer
His former team-mate Sadio Mane is already at the club and Alisson is ‘tempted’ by the move
Liverpool had already released Firmino, who scored a hat-trick on his debut for Saudi Pro League side Al-Ahli on Friday.
Should he leave, Liverpool would be left with the much-loved Caoimhin Kelleher as a replacement, but would no doubt have to weigh their options in the transfer market.
Klopp has already missed two of his top midfield targets at Chelsea in Moises Caicedo and Romeo Lavia.
Alisson, who has made 232 appearances since joining Liverpool for £65million in 2018, could become the latest known name to move to Saudi Arabia if he decides to leave Anfield.
Along with former Liverpool teammates Mane, Henderson and Firmino, Neymar is among other stars to join the Saudi Pro League.
Neymar completed his £78million move to Al-Hilal on Tuesday.
Neymar has left PSG after agreeing a two-year contract with the PIF-backed club, which is worth £130m-a-year.
Al-Hilal have also made a world-record offer of £259million for PSG superstar Kylian Mbappe, who rejected the move despite his poor relationship with the French club.
The Saudi side have spent big this summer on Ruben Neves from Wolves, Kalidou Koulibaly from Chelsea, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic from Lazio and Malcom from Zenit St Petersburg.
Al-Nassr has also signed players like former Manchester United full-back Alex Telles and Croatian midfielder Marcelo Brozovic.
Al-Hilal were beaten 2-1 by Ronaldo’s Al-Nassr in the Arab Champion Clubs’ Cup final on Saturday, having finished third in the league last season.
