Chelsea’s technical and performance advisor Petr Cech and goalkeeping scout Christophe Lollichon have reportedly been given the task of finding a new goalkeeper.

As things stand, Frank Lampard would have to rely on underwhelming Kepa Arrizabalaga and Willy Caballero, who will turn 39 next month, as his goalkeeping options next season.

Having conceded 54 goals in the Premier League in his first year in charge, Lampard is reportedly looking to bring in a new shot-stopper.

According to a report from the Telegraph, club director Marina Granovskaia still has the final say on all transfers, but both Cech and Lollichon are also expected to consider signing a new stopper.

Lollichon was the first-team goalkeeping coach at Chelsea for nine years (2007-16) before stepping up as head of the goalkeeping department and scout at the start of the 2016/17 season.

Prior to his tenure in West London, the former RC Ancenis manager spent most of his career as a goalkeeping coach in France; 11 years at Nantes and eight years at Stade Rennais.

Considering his experience and knowledge in French football, it would not be surprising if there could be a few Ligue 1 goalkeepers in his recommendation. Although, having been at Chelsea for over a decade, he would have plenty of knowledge about Premier League players as well.
