Chelsea chief Cech driving move for Werder Bremen goalkeeper Pavlenka

Chelsea transfers chief Petr Cech is driving their move for Werder Bremen goalkeeper Jiri Pavlenka.

Cech is central to a potential move. Pavlenka, 29, has been central to the Czech Republic's impressive performance at Euro 2020.

And Cech is believed to be a fan of his fellow countryman.

So much so, that Deichstube reports that he is 'campaigning' for Chelsea to sign him.

They also reckon that Cech's word 'carries a lot of weight' among the Blues' hierarchy.

Chelsea are interested in recruiting another goalkeeper this summer, to compete with current No1 Edouard Mendy.

Willy Caballero was released at the end of last season.

While Kepa Arrizabalaga could depart for first-team football - if the Blues find a suitor.
