The goalkeeping area is one department many will be keeping an eye on in the Chelsea team ahead of next season.

Chelsea have done very well in the transfer market this summer, with the capture of Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Ben Chilwell, Malang Sarr and Thiago Silva, with Kai Havertz also expected to sign in the coming days.

Chelsea have been linked with a number of goalkeepers as well, including Rennes goalkeeper Edouard Mendy, but some reports claim that the Blues might end up not signing a new goalkeeper, with Kepa Arrizabalaga expected to be given another chance to impress.

However, former Liverpool midfielder Jamie Redknapp, has hailed Chelsea’s signings so far, but thinks that it might not be fruitful if Chelsea end up not signing a quality goalkeeper.

The former Liverpool midfielder told Sky Sports: “I like what Frank’s doing there, you almost forget about Ziyech that they signed so early at the end of last season, so he’s been a player that’s had a few months at the club, he understands how Frank works, he’s going to be a really good signing.

“Pulisic obviously was signed the season before, he had an amazing season. When you look at the attacking quality they have, it looks outstanding.

“I still think they’re a little way off, Frank will be aware of that.

“I don’t think they’ve sorted out the goalkeeping situation either yet because that was a major problem last year with Frank chopping and changing the goalkeeper. ‘I’d be amazed if they don’t get a goalkeeper in before the season starts.

“I think Liverpool right now and Manchester City are still some way ahead of where Chelsea are, but they’re improving.”
