Chelsea are still looking at goalkeepers despite bringing in Robert Sanchez in the last transfer transfer window.

That is according to a report from 90min, which claims that Chelsea are currently tracking Everton’s Jordan Pickford.

The Blues recently signed Robert Sanchez from Brighton & Hove Albion, but the aforementioned outlet has stated that they are still scouting other shot-stoppers and have Pickford on their radar.

Sanchez was in top form yesterday as he helped Chelsea to earn a clean sheet in their 0-0 draw with Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium.

The Spaniard is currently Mauricio Pochettino’s No.1 following Kepa Arrizabalaga’s loan move to Real Madrid.

Chelsea should not sign Jordan Pickford

Pickford is obviously a top goalkeeper. Last season, he made 123 saves in the Premier League, the third most in the division (FBref).

However, would the England international, who cost Everton £30m when he joined from Sunderland back in 2017, be a significant upgrade on Sanchez? Probably not.

The 25-year-old is not a terrible shot-stopper either, proving that with his recent display at the Vitality Stadium.

If Chelsea plan on bringing in another goalkeeper, then it has to be someone who is levels above their current No.1, otherwise it would be a pointless signing. And with Sanchez having just joined the club, it should not really be something that they are thinking about right now.

Chelsea also bought Djordje Petrovic and are yet to actually sell Kepa, so talk of them potentially moving for another player who can play in goal is baffling.
