Chelsea have had a very good transfer window, with the signings of Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Ben Chilwell, Malang Sarr and Thiago Silva. The Blues are also expected to sign Kai Havertz soon.

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has hailed Chelsea’s buys in the transfer market this summer, but insists that the Blues still need to sign a top goalkeeper, else it won’t be enough to challenge at the top.

The former Liverpool and England defender Carragher said: “Chelsea had to buy four players, I get that.

“But if they don’t reinforce in the goalkeeping situation, I don’t see much change for them really in terms of where they will finish.”

Meanwhile, Chelsea legendary goalkeeper Petr Cech, who’s currently serving as the club’s technical and performance advisor, has revealed that Kepa won’t be leaving the club, although he didn’t rule out the possibility of a new goalkeeper joining the club.

“Kepa struggled last season, that is unquestionable,” Cech told Sport.cz.

“But the club invested in him and gave him a long-term contract because they believe he has the qualities and attributes to be successful.

“Additions will be made to the squad, perhaps even in goal, and this is what is being discussed now. But nobody is giving up on Kepa and we all hope he has a great future.”
