Chelsea considering Sergio Romero as Willy Caballero replacement

Chelsea are considering a move for former Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero as they seek a new third-choice goalkeeper this summer. The Blues are well-stocked in the goalkeeping department as things stand, with Edouard Mendy and Kepa Arrizabalaga set to continue their battle over the No 1 jersey. The Senegal international is Thomas Tuchel's current choice, starting the majority of games since signing last September. However, some decent form from Kepa late in the season went some way to restoring his damaged reputation. The departure of Wily Caballero, however, means that the experience level drops dramatically beyond those two. 21-year-old Jamie Cumming, who spent last season at Stevenage, is the most senior option, but the Blues seem unlikely to keep
