Hi there i had a similar problem when i bought my alfa 147 it would go into gear and ten it would not without using alot of force. I took it to a lot of places where they said it was a massive job, stripping the clutch a new gear box. costing around £500
Then i went to Alfatech in huddersfield (indie) who opened the bonnet did not even look at the clutch and cleaned the bushes out with a crow bar like instrument. This fixed the problem and only cost £40 so i would give that a try as the indie said its a common fault as there is lots of gunk, oil gunje etc that makes it hard to go in gear not too technical myself but def worth a try cos many garages will willingly lie to u and rip u off.!!

when i first bought my 147 i had similar problems i had problems getting into 3rd or 4th which is annoying when you have a line of cars behind you and you cant get the stupid thing in gear.

I had a new clutch fitted and haven't had the problem since,but the gearbox is still a bit rough im guessing thats just what 147s are like?
