20-year-old goalkeeper Lucas Bergstrom has been seen in Chelsea first-team training after returning to the club this month.

The Finland international was on loan at Peterborough, where he had originally been having a strong spell in League 1.

However, a string of errors has left the Posh outside the play-off places, conceding more goals than all of the sides above them and Wycombe one place below.

He had originally enjoyed a spell of four clean sheets in his opening 11 games for his loan club, however was only able to add one more to those in the 10 games after.

His time in League One was his first spell away from the club since he joined in 2019. Up until then, he had enjoyed regular promotion up the youth sides to the U21 level.

One positive though of his spell in Peterborough will undoubtedly be his call up to the international side, making his debut earlier this month.

Now though, he will be focusing on whatever Chelsea career he has possible as he re-joins training.

He has at least been seen with the first team, where there will no doubt be an opportunity to learn from current stars Kepa Arrizabalaga and Edouard Mendy.

There have been rumours that the club are looking to strengthen their goalkeeper position, with fingers definitely being pointed at both options at times this season for goals conceded,

They have been linked with a move for Brentford’s David Raya, who has attracted interest from many top Premier League sides.

With the rumoured cut-price value that he could be available for, it looks a smart and obvious acquisition to be made at Stamford Bridge.
