With Kepa Arrizabalaga struggling to impress this season and Willy Caballero not a longterm option, Chelsea young goalkeeper Nathan Baxter hopes to become a goalkeeper for the first team.
The 21 year old is currently on loan at Scottish club Ross County and hopes his performances at his loan club will earn him a place in the first team.
“It’s ultimately my dream to play for Chelsea but the only way I’ll be able to do that and impress the club is if I perform well here,” Baxter said.
“While I’d love to play for the first team one day, I’m a County player now and first and foremost my job is to perform well and help us stay in the division and push for the top six.”
“I’ve had lots of chats with senior players at the club and they all advised me to go out on loan. The first team is made up of lads I was with since the age of eight, so it’s a great time to be a young player at Chelsea.
“In the Youth Cup-winning Chelsea side Fikayo Tomori was the centre-back, with Mason Mount in the middle and Tammy Abraham up front, so it was a pretty good youth team.
“I’m proud of what they’re doing now and makes me think if these guys have done it then it gives inspiration.”
