David Raya to Chelsea

No rumours around him to us that I have seen recently, but more of me putting 2 and 2 together and likely getting 43.

Anyways Fabrizio has said our priority is to sign a competitor to Kepa and not spend "crazy money" on that keeper, ruling out Onana (rumoured price tag of 60mill) and Mike Maigian (rumoured price tag of 85mill)

Now while Fabrizio has not commented on Diogo Costs being linked to us he would not be competition to Kepa he would well and truly knock him in to the back up role.

So this is where I come to David Raya. We apparently want someone with experience but who is also young. At 27 Raya is young for a keeper, and also experienced in the PL.

His price tag is also not up there with those other 3, apparently at 40mill though I imagine we could get it down to the mid to high thirties.

So my guess is we bring in Raya as Kepas competitor. Let's see if anything comes of this hunch.

I also think this may be a valid option and have thought for a while. Only thing is Brentford are playing hard ball over his fee. They say they are happy to go with three keepers next season if no one matches their asking fee. Seems they are not bluffing as well, hence why Spurs backed out. But for me I wouldn't pay more than £30m for him. Contract runs out next season. Brentford generally speaking are a selling club too and can they afford to lose out on £30m or so rather than a free if clubs refuse to pay their asking fee till the end of the transfer window. They effectively have already brought Raya's replacement and I am sure he has joined Brentford on the basis he plays which again I think gives other teams more bargaining power.

Very good keeper though.

Mentioned this before, but really surprised we are not going for Raya. He is not the biggest bit has excellent commandment of his box and is technically brilliant. His stats last season were brilliant.

Agreed, would be a big improvement for us imo.
