Thomas Tuchel’s first signing as Chelsea boss could be a replacement for Willy Caballero who was released by the Blues last month.

According to The Express, the Blues are in talks to sign former Crystal Palace goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey.

Following the exit of Caballero last month, Tuchel wants someone equally as experienced and capable to occupy that role next season and has identified Hennessey as a potential candidate.

The 34 year old Hennessey has played for Wolverhampton Wanderers, Bristol City, Stockport County, Yeovil Town and Crystal Palace in his career so far.

The move would be strikingly similar to the 2018 transfer of Rob Green, where the former West Ham keeper did not feature at all in his one season at the club, simply providing back up for Kepa and Caballero.
