Southampton star a surprise target for Chelsea

Chelsea will turn their attention to Southampton goalkeeper Fraser Forster this summer if Thibaut Courtois leaves the West London club, according to The Daily Mail.

The Blues are expected to shake up their playing squad at the end of the current campaign, with new manager Antonio Conte set to make changes to personnel.

One of the big-name stars being tipped to leave Stamford Bridge is Thibaut Courtois, who has admitted in the recent past that his future at the club is uncertain.

With Real Madrid believed to be keen on the former Atletico stopper, Chelsea could well cash-in on the Belgium international this summer.

If this does happen, a move for England international Forster is being touted.

The custodian has been impressive since moving to St Mary’s from Celtic and has recently returned to action following injury concerns.

Should Forster move to the outgoing champions he would compete with Asmir Begovic for a starting berth.
