West London outfit Chelsea are reported to be keen on the signature of a new goalkeeper as they no longer have faith in Kepa Arrizabalaga over his recent performances at the Stamford Bridge.

It was earlier reported that the Blues team have made an inquiry about Man United goalkeeper Dean Henderson, who is on loan with Sheffield United but they were told he would not be allowed to switch to the Stamford Bridge.

The Red Devils are not willing to strengthen their rivals and will rather send him out of England, in case they no longer have need of him but the shot-stopper has been impressive for Sheffield since the restart of football.

Chelsea are, therefore, faced with a lot of uncertainties over a new goalkeeper and are yet to make any decision, especially with the next step for Dean Henderson, according to Sunday Express.

Kepa Arrizabalaga arrived Chelsea in a £71 million deal from Athletic Club in 2018 and could be sent out as soon as the Blues team is able to secure a replacement for him.

Chelsea have also lined up Atletico Madrid goalkeeper, Jan Oblak as a top target but there seems to be difficulty in landing him because he is valued in Spain and would not be allowed to leave that easy.
