Chelsea looking to sign goalkeeper this summer

What a summer this is shaping up to be for Chelsea.

After facing a 12-month transfer ban the Blues are hoping to make up for lost time by doing some serious business in the summer transfer window.

Deals have already been completed to sign Hakim Ziyech from Ajax and Timo Werner from RB Leipzig, however they're far from done.

Any future deals will no doubt hinge in whether the club qualifies for the Champions League.

The Blues sit in third place in the Premier League with just two games remaining, meaning that the ball is firmly in their court if they're to confirm a top four finish.

As soon as that's done, it's likely that the West London club will crack on in the transfer market.

Kai Havertz is a player who is regarded as the number one target, but according to reports, they could be looking at another key position as well.

That position is between the sticks.

According to The Telegraph, Chelsea are targeting a goalkeeper to help them kick on.

It's claimed that the Blues are growing increasingly frustrated with Kepa Arrizabalaga after a mixed time at Stamford Bridge.

The Spaniard joined the club two years ago but has attracted mixed reviews during his time at the club due to a number of high profile errors.

Those mistakes have led many to question his performances given the fact he arrived for a world-record fee of £72million.

It remains to be seen whether the club will be able to offload Kepa this summer, but it's claimed that this won't stop Chelsea from looking for an alternative.

Petr Cech is reportedly the man who has been tasked with compiling a list of goalkeepers who could head to West London - regardless of whether Kepa stays or not.

This will include one step of targets for if the Spaniard stays, and one if he leaves.

GIVEMESPORT'S Phil Spencer says...

This could be a huge signal of intent from Chelsea.

Kepa Arrizabalaga has not been a success since arriving in West London and is far from a universally popular figure at the club.

While of course it takes time to adapt to life in the Premier League, the fact that he's already been with the Blues for two years suggests that it's a move that just might not work out.

I can't see any club paying the sort of fee that Chelsea paid for the stopper, but if they can recoup their losses and sign a more suitable replacement it could be a very good piece of business.

A solid goalkeeper will be key to helping the Blues to compete at the top of the table, and so getting this decision right is crucial.
