Chelsea to launch bid for Borussia Dortmund keeper Burki

Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Burki has emerged as a target for Chelsea.

The Sun says Chelsea are lining up a shock £15million move for Burki.

The Swiss star is being eyed to replace out-of-favour Kepa Arrizabalaga at Stamford Bridge.

And the Blues are banking on a cut-price deal as he only has one year left on his contract.

Burki, 29, has played more than 150 games for the Bundesliga club and is up for a Prem switch.

It is a further sign Kepa has failed to convince boss Frank Lampard he can be his long-term No 1.
