Chelsea draw up shortlist of keeper transfer targets

Chelsea have constructed a shortlist of goalkeepers to replace Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Frank Lampard has decided to search for a new number one after being left unimpressed with the Spaniard's performances this season.

A return to Spain is likely for the former Athletic Bilbao man.

But any move might be tricky as the Blues want to re-coup as much of the £71m they paid for Kepa two years ago as possible.

Looking towards the future and Chelsea have identified three names to pursue this summer.

Sky Sports says Nick Pope, Andre Onana and Jan Oblak are all being considered.

Pope has been a standout performer for Burnley this season and would arguably be Gareth Southgate's first-choice heading into the next round of international fixtures.

Onana is the easiest and most affordable option with Ajax open to selling the Cameroon international for £35m.

Atletico Madrid star Oblak would represent a massive coup for Chelsea, not only for his ability but also the £110m release clause attached to his contract.
