And should the Blues cash in on the 24-year-old this summer, it’s claimed they’ll turn their attentions to Ahmed El-Shenawy.

A relative unknown, the 6 foot 4 shot-stopper currently plies his trade with Zamelek SC and won the Egyptian Premier League title with them in 2015 – notching up 19 clean sheets in the process.

The 25-year-old is also first-choice for Egypt at international level, with 18 caps to date, and could be available for just £3million this summer due to his contract entering its final twelve months.

The Sun claim understudy Asmir Begovic could also leave Stamford Bridge this summer in search of greater game time.
