While Chelsea moved swiftly to sign up Asmir Begovic from Stoke City as Petr Cech’s replacement this summer, more recently they have been linked with more goalkeeping reinforcements.
These come in the form of Fulham number one Marcus Bettinelli who missed the Cottagers’ final pre-season fixture against Crystal Palace at the weekend.
While Get West London Sport claim he missed the fixture with a tweaked hamstring, his absence has done nothing to dampen the speculation that he could be set for a move away from Craven Cottage.
Fulham boss Kit Symons has already swooped to sign the experienced Andy Lonergan this summer and given his suitability to the Championship, perhaps he’ll be the number one and England Under-21 international Bettinelli will be moved on.
Unlikely to be content as a third choice selection at Chelsea, if he signed for the Blues, we could see him securing a loan switch away back into the Football League.
