Chelsea determined to make new goalkeeper signing

Chelsea are determined to make a new goalkeeper signing.

The London Evening Standard says the Blues finalised the signing of Kai Havertz on Friday and have also added Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Ben Chilwell and Thiago Silva to their squad.

Chelsea paid an initial club-record £72m fee for Havertz in a deal that has taken their summer spending beyond £200m.

Frank Lampard wants to sign a goalkeeper after losing faith in Kepa Arrizabalaga towards the end of last season.

The Blues have been linked with Rennes's Edouard Mendy and Manchester United No2 Sergio Romero. Chelsea have been offered Ajax's Andre Onana.

It is unlikely a keeper will be signed in time for Chelsea's first game of the season, at Brighton next Monday, so Lampard faces a decision over whether to start Kepa or Willy Caballero.
