Chelsea are keeping tabs on this Borussia Dortmund custodian

If the most recent report from Sport1 reporter Patrick Berger It is believed to be true and Chelsea are keeping tabs on Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper Gregor Kerber. But they are not alone, with United keen on a potential summer move for the Swiss star.

The Blues also met the players’ entourage for their Champions League last-16 tie in west London. Although the black and yellow army suffered a defeat at Stamford Bridge, Kerber is not eager to explore new challenges in the short term. He is expected to stay for another year, however, given his desire to win trophies, transfer talks could pick up pace in the near future.

Borussia Dortmund have reemerged under Edin Terzic but remain behind Bayern Munich at the top of the Bundesliga table. They were no longer a threat in Europe and the Blues, under Todd Burleigh, overcame their initial missteps with a display of sheer ambition.

Gregor Kobel against Christopher Nkunku

Chelsea have completed a string of high-profile, mega-money transfers over the past two windows. Additionally, they reconfigured the back office and hired Graham Potter to replace Thomas Tuchel as the new CEO. The former Brighton boss has struggled to build momentum through a winning streak, but in the long run his vision and brand of football should give the club credit.

Why Chelsea must bring him to justice

Meanwhile, the west London heavyweights are expected to continue to splurge in the upcoming window. The arrival of Christopher Nkunku will support their high position on the pitch, but given the limitations of Kepa Arrizabalaga and Edouard Mendy, the goalscoring crisis must be addressed.

Mendy was instrumental in their Champions League triumph a few years ago but is now Kepa’s backup due to form and fitness reasons.Furthermore, the 31-year-old Senegalese chose not to write contract expand. That could lead to his exit in the summer, making way for a new “first”.

Despite regaining his starting spot under Potter, Kepa has been unable to justify the “world’s most expensive goalkeeper” tag following his staggering €80m move from Athletic Bilbao. The next few months will be crucial for the Spaniard in securing his future at Chelsea.

Kerber, on the other hand, has been outstanding since completing his transfer from Stuttgart in the summer of 2021 for 15 million euros. He excels in one-on-one situations and is confident with the ball at his feet. Plus, the 25-year-old’s reflexes and decision-making make him a perfect fit for Porter’s fluid passing game.
