Chelsea eye Stoke star as Courtois replacement

28 November, 2017, 01:39 | Author: Eleanor Thompson

Belgium global Courtois has been the Blues' undisputed number one goalkeeper since returning from a three-year loan spell at Atletico Madrid in 2014 and is garnering interest from Real and Ligue 1 leaders Paris Saint-Germain, according to the Daily Mail.

Although Butland decided against a move to Stamford Bridge as a teenager due to concerns over a lack of first team opportunities, the chance to move there now as a direct replacement for Courtois would surely be too much for the young keeper to turn down.

The Ligue 1 leaders are themselves in need of a new stopper with Alphonse Areola and Kevin Trapp failing to convince in the French capital.

But should the Potters decide to cash in, they would demand a bigger fee than the British record £30m that Everton paid Sunderland for Jordan Pickford in the summer.

Chelsea's man between the posts Thibaut Courtois has hailed Eden Hazard as arguably the best player in the Premier League, chelseafc.com reports.

The report claims that Chelsea are anxious that Courtois is prepared to make a move away, with reports earlier this summer linking him with Spanish giants Real Madrid.

The Premier League champions are keen to tie Courtois down to a new contract before the summer in order to avoid a similar situation to the one facing Arsenal with Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, both of whom could be available for a cut-price deal in January or else can leave on a free at the end of the campaign.

"Regarding my contract, that's something where Chelsea must deal with my agent (Christophe Henrotay)".
