Chelsea coach Lollichon in contact with Crystal Palace keeper Guaita (but he's not alone)

Chelsea have expressed interest in Crystal Palace goalkeeper Vicente Guaita.

AS says Chelsea goalkeeper coach Christophe Lollichon is driving the move and has already established contact with the 33 year-old's agents. Lollichon has sought information on Guaita's contract and his plans for next season.

The Spaniard is seen by Chelsea as a replacement for Willy Caballero, who will come off contract in June. The form displayed by Guaita also would represent a major threat to Kepa Arrizabalaga's first-choice status.

However, Chelsea aren't alone in their interest with Manchester City and West Ham also in contact.

For their part, Palace are drawing up a new contract offer for Guaita, whose current deal expires in 2021.
