With Willy Caballero having departed Stamford Bridge, an experienced 29-year-old is being brought in as a free agent following the end of his contract at Fulham.
The Blues were linked with a move for former Manchester United Sergio Romero, but seems he wasn’t looking to make a return to England which they had to look elsewhere.
This will be the first signing for Thomas Tuchel who is not worried about the goalkeeper department as Marcus Bettinelli won’t be seeing much game time.
Although anything could happen and he could get to be handed the number role with Kepa Arrizabalaga also sometimes not reliable.
Good deal for Chelsea who are still hoping they will complete a move for Erling Haaland before the season kicks off in August.
