The player has been linked with a move to the Blues
Chelsea are expected to overhaul their side this summer after an underwhelming Premier League and Champions League campaign last season. They finished 5th in the league and will miss the Champions League in the upcoming season.
The Blues appointed Maurizio Sarri as their new manager after sacking Antonio Conte and also completed the signing of midfielder Jorginho from Napoli, the club’s first summer signing.
They have been behind in the transfer window in comparison to other Premiere League clubs but with the arrival of the Italian midfielder it is believed that it will finally kickstart their transfer plans.
One of the unexpected areas The English Side might have to strengthen is between the sticks as Thibaut Courtois continues to be linked with a move to Real Madrid.
The Premier League giants have been linked with host of goalkeepers like Alisson Becker, Jordan Pickford, Joe Hart and even Petr Cech. They also have been linked with a move for AC Milan goalkeeper Pepe Reina, one of Sarri’s former players.
The Spain International joined the Rossoneri from Napoli on a Bosman transfer back in May, signing a 3 year contract.
The 35 year old was a regular for the Italian side in Serie A last season, making 37 appearances and helped his team to finish second behind the champions Juventus.
The Goalkeeper also has Premier League experience as he made 394 appearances for Liverpool FC during eight seasons at the Anfield outfit before his move to Bayern Munich in 2014.
But Reina has dismissed the transfer links with Chelsea by claiming that they are just rumours and and he just wants to enjoy with his teammates now.
Reina told CMC as quoted by thesportsreview: “They are just rumours.
“I have only just arrived. I want to enjoy these days with the boys and integrate with the group as quickly as possible. I want to give my best, my contribution and continue to improve.”
