Revealed: The FOUR goalkeepers STILL on Chelsea's radar
Chelsea’s ludicrous spending in the transfer market is showing no signs of slowing down, with reports that four goalkeepers are on their radar, despite the summer additions of Robert Sanchez and Djordje Petrovic.
Sanchez and Petrovic were signed from Brighton & Hove Albion and New England Revolution respectively, with Chelsea acting quickly following the permanent departure of Edouard Mendy to Al-Ahli and Kepa Arrizabalaga’s loan move to Real Madrid.
Although Kepa has only returned to Spain on loan, he has stated that he would like to extend his spell at Los Blancos beyond this season, meaning a return to Stamford Bridge appears unlikely.
Sanchez, 25, has played 90 minutes in each of Chelsea's five Premier League matches so far, with the Spaniard keeping two clean sheets during that time. He was particularly impressive during their 0-0 draw against Bournemouth on Sunday.
As for Petrovic, he is yet to make his Blues debut, with Mauricio Pochettino favouring the more experienced Sanchez in between the sticks.
In addition, Gabriel Slonina, 19, joined the Blues from Chicago Fire in 2022 and is spending the 2023-24 season on loan at Belgian club KAS Eupen.
However, the Chelsea board don’t seem completely convinced by their current options in goal and have reportedly identified four possible transfer targets.
Chelsea’s goalkeeper shortlist
90min have reported that Porto’s Diogo Costa, Valencia’s Giorgi Mamardashvili and Everton’s Jordan Pickford are all on the west London club’s radar, with Mamardashvili particularly high on their wish-list.
Ramsdale was dropped for Arsenal’s 1-0 win over Everton this weekend, with Mikel Arteta including summer signing David Raya in the Gunners’ starting XI.
Raya is currently on loan at Arsenal from Brentford, and the north London club have the option to make the deal permanent next summer.
