Chelsea have asked Crystal Palace keeper Vicente Guaita’s entourage about potential transfer.
Spanish outlet AS is reporting that the Blues have joined Manchester City in a race to sign the 33-year-old.
Guaita has been a standout player for Palace since taking the gloves from Wayne Hennessey midway through last season.
Chelsea scout Christophe Lovichon has enquired with Guaita’s camp to find out if he would like a move across London to Stamford Bridge.
Current Blues stopper Kepa Arrizabalaga’s future is not certain under manager Frank Lampard due to a number of errors.
Guaita’s contract runs out in the summer of 2021 and Palace have been keen to tie him down on a longer deal.
