Chelsea have ‘reached an agreement’ to sign Turkish goalkeeper Ugurcan Cakir, according to reports in Turkey.
Ugurcan is said to be one of the finest goal keepers outside the Europe’s top five league, and has capped twice by Turkey twice.
The Trabzonspor number one has made a total of 40 appearances for his club this season, And has kept 4 clean sheets in 30 league appearances for the club.
The 24-year-old is expected to be a very good competing partner and back up of not-in-form Kepa Arizzabalaga if the move to Chelsea actualizes.
It is no seceret that Frank Lampard often lose confidence in Kepa, so he needs a good partner to compete with Chelsea number one and also replace seeming moving away Old Willy Caballero.
It’s reported that the Turkish international had a €24m (£21.5m) bid from Liverpool in January, while he has also been linked with Tottenham and Leicester in the past, but Chelsea have become the latest Premier League side to enter the race and are confident in signing him.
According to Turkish outlet Haber 365, the Blues have agreed a deal with the talented shot shopper in the region of €33m (£29.5m), so could see him make a move to London from 2020/21 season.
Despite the big money move by Kepa, the Spaniard has under performed his expectations and both the fans and hierarchy are not happy about it.
Apart from Cakir, Chelsea has been reportedly linked to other goal keepers like Ajax’s Andre Onana, Bournemouth’s Aaron Ramsdale and also Manchester United loanee, Dean Henderson.
With Werner and Ziyech already in London, Chelsea has been hot in the transfer market, after facing a one year ban.
