Thomas Strakosha ‘honoured’ to be linked with Chelsea

Thomas Strakosha has admitted he is desperate to make the move to the Premier League, with Chelsea and Fulham both keen to sign the former Lazio goalkeeper.

90min understands Fulham were pushing to sign the free agent earlier this month but have since turned their attention to Arsenal’s Bernd Leno, while reports elsewhere have named Chelsea as possible suitors in the event that current backup, Kepa Arrizabalaga, is sold.

Lazio have been linked with Kepa in the past and the Spaniard is understood to be keen on a move away from Stamford Bridge after finding him stuck firmly behind Edouard Mendy in the pecking order at Chelsea.

It’s possible the two goalkeepers could change places this summer, and Strakosha has admitted he would listen to anything Chelsea had to say to him.

“I’m completely honoured to be linked with a club like Chelsea,” he told Fabrizio Romano. “I think all the clubs in the Premier League, to be linked, it’s really important because, for me, it’s the best league in the world. It’s an honour. I’m really happy.
