Blues eye one of three goalies in likely final summer deal

Chelsea have established themselves as one of the busiest clubs in transfer dealings in recent times with the acquisition of Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech, Malang Sarr, Xavier Mbuyamba, Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva, and most recently the highly sought-after Kai Havertz.

The Blues are now looking to complete their summer dealings with the acquisition of a goalkeeper to provide competition for Kepa Arrizabalaga.

The Blues paid an initial club record £72m fee for Havertz and this took their summer spending spree beyond £200m. Kai Havertz put pen to paper on a five-year deal and is Frank Lampard’s seventh summer signing.

The English manager now needs a goalkeeper having seemingly lost faith in Kepa towards the end of last season with Willy Caballero preferred between the sticks for Chelsea.

Chelsea have already been linked with the likes of Rennes’ Edouard Mendy, Manchester United’s Sergio Romero, and have been reportedly offered Ajax’s Andre Onana.

It is unsure if a goalie will be signed before their first game of the season away to Brighton on Monday so Lampard will have to decide on who to use between Kepa and Caballero.

If the latter is used, the Lampard has totally lost confidence in the Spaniard and his days at Stamford Bridge will be numbered.
