World Cup winner Alphonse Areola is in talks to extend his stay at Paris Saint-Germain after entering the final season of his contract.
Speculation has surrounded the France goalkeeper's future since veteran Gianluigi Buffon arrived as a positional rival in July.
Roma reportedly considered making him Alisson's successor while Chelsea goalkeeper coach Christophe Lollichon claims his compatriot was keen on replacing Thibaut Courtois at Stamford Bridge.
A transfer failed to materialise and the 25-year-old now appears set to continue at his hometown club.
"Discussions [over a new deal] have begun," Areola told Telefoot.
"The season is not over. I have a year left and I hope to be successful.
"The important thing is to play. Playing at home is even better. If I'm allowed to play, why not [stay]?"
