Premier League trio target Chelsea starlet in short-term deal

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is wanted by three different Premier League clubs on loan next season.

Southampton, Fulham and Wigan Athletic all want the 20-year-old, according to The Sun, with the youngster yet to play a game in the English top flight.

Chelsea brought the former Genk starlet to Stamford Bridge for £8.5million two years ago, but he’s spent the subsequent campaigns on loan at Atletico Madrid.

His impact has been immediate, helping Diego Simeone’s side to Europa League glory last term and an impressive run in La Liga this time around.

Indeed, Courtois has kept 24 clean sheets in all competitions in the 2012/13 season, and just wants to be out on the pitch wherever he goes next season.

“I want to play in a team where I’m on the pitch,” he said, according to The Sun.

Fulham are in the market for a stopper, as manager Martin Jol looks to replace Mark Schwarzer at Craven Cottage. The Australian veteran is out of contract in the summer.

Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino has received ‘rave reviews’ about the player from Spain, according to the paper, whilst Wigan chief Roberto Mancini is also open to bringing the player to the DW Stadium.

And, with the Chelsea hierarchy eager for the youngster to gain experience closer to home next term, one of the chasing pack could be in luck, as the Blues continue to give Petr Cech’s eventual successor opportunities to gain experience.
