Chelsea FC to rival Tottenham for Brentford goalkeeper David Raya


The two London clubs also face competition from Manchester United for the Spain international, who is in the final 18 months of his contract and could be available on a cut-price deal in the summer.

Raya has impressed for Brentford since their promotion to the Premier League and the 27-year-old has been a key part of the Bees side who sit eighth in the table.

Chelsea are targeting a new long-term No.1 and are willing to offload Edouard Mendy or Kepa Arrizabalaga.

It seems more likely that Mendy will be sold, given that he has been unable to agree a new contract after rejecting an offer from the club.

The 30-year-old is one of the lowest paid players in Chelsea’s squad and has attracted interest from AC Milan, Monaco and Nice.

Talks over a new deal are not due to resume until April or May, when more opportunities are available for the Senegal goalkeeper.

Tottenham, meanwhile, are making a long-term succession plan for captain Hugo Lloris and are also interested in Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak.

Oblak is ready for a move to the Premier League, but he would cost a lot more than Raya.
