Chelsea: Blues eyeing potential move for David Raya

Chelsea: Blues eyeing potential move for David Raya - Chelsea News

Chelsea are monitoring the situation of Brentford goalkeeper David Raya ahead of a potential move for him this summer, according to a fresh transfer rumour.

The Lowdown: Raya a key man for Brentford

The Bees are enjoying an excellent season under Thomas Frank, picking up hugely impressive results against the likes of Arsenal, Manchester City, Manchester United and Liverpool.

Raya has been one of Brentford’s key men throughout the campaign, starting all 22 of his side’s Premier League matches and winning three Man of the Match awards from WhoScored.

The Spaniard’s current deal expires at the end of next season, meaning a summer move isn’t out of the question.

The Latest: Chelsea eyeing potential move

According to, Chelsea are ‘one of a number of clubs’ who are interested in signing Raya in the summer transfer window.

It is stated he has already turned down two contract offers from Brentford, further suggesting that he could be eyeing up a move to a bigger club.

The Verdict: Upgrade on current options

Raya could be an excellent signing by Chelsea, having picked up Premier League experience at this point – 46 appearances at this point – and been integral to the Bees’ success.

At 27, there is a strong argument to say that the two-time capped Spain international’s best years are still ahead of him and he could be an upgrade on both Kepa Arrizabalaga and Edouard Mendy, who have only won two Match of the Match awards between them this season.

Raya has been hailed as ‘incredible’ by Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp because of his distribution, with that side of his game surely appealing to Graham Potter.
