SportWitness today had translated claims from Spain which held that Chelsea were sniffing around Marc Andre ter Stegen.
The Barcelona goalkeeper has established himself as one of the world’s finest goalkeepers, and the last two seasons in particular have seen him evolve into a top tier stopper.
The idea that we’re going to be able to persuade him to leave Catalonia is probably fanciful, as the article points out. But the mere fact we’re interested and linked is significant.
We’ve seen Kepa restored to the team in our two most recent games, but that’s really because Willy Caballero is not a sufficient alternative. This summer, we expect the Blues to go out and sign a good goalie to provide Kepa with competition. It won’t be Ter Stegen in all likelihood, but starting at the top of the list and working our way down is a sensible way to run things.
