Chelsea add goalkeeper to Champions League squad amid Kepa Arrizabalaga reports

Chelsea have added young goalkeeper Nicolas Tie to their Champions League squad on the ‘B’ List.

The 18-year-old joined the Blues’s academy in the summer of 2017 and has been part of the Development Squad and the FA Youth Cup.

On a few occasions, Tie has also been part of the first team squad and has been the third goalkeeper when Kepa Arrizabalaga has not been in the squad.

It’s unlikely that Tie will get any playing time, with Kepa, Willy Caballero and Jamie Cumming as the main goalkeeper choices.
