Alfa GT Issue?

Hi everyone

I have recently bought an Alfa GT Selespeed (2005) it was running fine and everything was good, but and yes there was always going to be a "but" I bought a used Alfa.........

I started driving and there was a squealing noise from underneath and I at first started losing drive intermittently then about half a mile further lost all drive and car would not go into gear at all, I never got an error message on the dash saying Selespeed failure.

I managed to get the car home and it is currently sitting on my drive looking pretty.

I will talk you through what happens and I hope that someone on here can shed some light on the problem?
When I turn on the ignition to light up the dash I get the message on the dash saying "Active Check" and no error message but and starting the car I can shift through all gears in city and sport mode and I can hear the mechanical clunk from the gearbox but as soon as I start the car the gearbox will not engage any gears at all, if I try to select 1st gear there is a rhythmic and dull click from under the car, I hear the Selespeed pump start when I open the driver door and the fluid in the Selespeed bottle is clear.
could it be clutch related rather than gearbox? any help advice very appreciated

Alfa, Peugeot

At a wild guess, clutch release bearing has pushed through the clutch fingers.
