Chelsea still want to sign 28-year-old Germany international

Blues have already secured a couple of great transfers ahead of next campaign, but there’s no doubt that this would blow Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech out the water. It’s blatantly obvious that they need a new shot-stopper next campaign, Kepa’s confidence has been undermined to the point of no comeback and Caballero is a career back-up.

Blues are planning a bold move to sign Marc-Andre ter Stegen from Blaugrana, and that really would be a game-changer. Marc’s easily one of the best goalkeepers in the world he’s dominant in the air, he commands his box, his reflexes are sharp and he has the technical skills of an outfield footballer.

It looks very unlikely that La Liga giants would allow him to go, but it sounds like his deal situation could play a huge role here. They confirm that Germany international’s only got two years left on his deal and negotiations over an extension have been going on for months, so the London giants are now monitoring this very closely.

Just in case this wasn’t ambitious enough from Blues, they go on to suggest that they would be looking to offer Kepa in part exchange for the 28-year-old. At this point that would be the equivalent of trying to swap an average car that breaks down a lot for a top of the range model you know you will also need to pay a huge fee on top of that.

There’s no price tag mentioned at this point and it does sound terrifically far fetched, but it’s worth keeping an eye on this until the German shot-stopper agrees on a new deal.
