Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has added young goalkeeper Nicolas Tie to Chelsea’s Champions League squad amid concerns over the form of Kepa Arrizabalaga.

The 18-year-old goalkeeper was born in Lille in France in 2001 and joined Chelsea from French lower league side Stade Poitevin FC in 2017.

Tie, who has already represented the Ivory Coast at Under-23 level, was added to the Champions League B-list.

The 18 year old is a fast, tall, athletic, moves quickly around his box, and has very good reactions.

It is yet to be seen whether Lampard will opt for the 18 year old over Kepa, Willy Caballero and and Jamie Cumming.
