Chelsea identified Udinese keeper as their top transfer target

Chelsea are keeping close tabs on Udinese goalkeeper Juan Musso, according to the reports.

Chelsea are interested in securing the services of Musso as Frank Lampard plans to strengthen his goalkeeping options.

The Blues boss has lost faith in the underperforming Spanish goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga. The Englishman has relegated the Spanish stopper to the bench and preferred Willy Caballero instead.

The reserve stopper is 38 years old and does not seems to be a long-term solution. Lampard is keen on to make a new goalkeeper this summer for a new number one and Udinese’s Juan Musso one of the options being monitored.

The 25-year-old has joined up with the Serie A team from Racing club back in 2018. He has since gone on to play 54 games for the Bianconeri.

The Argentine has established himself as a vital player at Udinese and the reports suggest that the Blues will have to pay £25million if the West London club make a move for him in the summer.

Muso is of Argentine he has won a solitary international cap for Argentina against Morocco back in 2019. He later replaced the injured Esteban Andrada in Argentina starting XI for the 2019 Copa America.
