Former Chelsea player informs club who goalkeeper to sign this summer: “Exceptional”

One of the main positions that Chelsea is hoping to sign this summer is one of the most essential positions on the field, if not THE most important position.

As we all know, there are some concerns about the futures of both Edouard Mendy and Kepa Arrizabalaga, with the latter appearing to be the most likely to depart the partnership right now. So, if that happens, Chelsea will be looking for a new goalkeeper to contend for the number one slot.

There have been numerous links and rumours involving possible candidates, including Aston Villa’s Emi Martinez and Inter Milan’s Andre Onana, amongst others.

Former Chelsea midfielder Frank Leboeuf discussed transfer targets and much more in this week’s exclusive and extended Chelsea FC column for Si & Dan Talk Chelsea.

The former Blues captain has made it clear who he wants to replace him.

“[Emi] Martinez is a player you don’t like, but when he plays for you, you love him!” stated Leboeuf. He’s an excellent goalkeeper. I’d want to see him at Chelsea, but [Aston] Villa finished above Chelsea last season, so I’m not sure if they’d sell or bring him in.

But [Andre] Onana is the goalkeeper I really want. He had an outstanding season at Inter. You can sense his tranquillity, as well as his presence, power, and stamina. He never gives up, is always a good sport, and knows exactly what he needs to do.

 If I had to choose a new goalie for Chelsea, I would go with Onana. Martinez and Onana are not the same, but Chelsea’s defense requires someone to give them confidence. Onana is basically cool and does his job; he keeps his teammates calm, which I appreciate. Let’s see what Mauricio Pochettino wants and what he’ll do, and whether any of these names can be signed. I’d be pleased with either Martinez or Onana, but if I had to choose, I’d go with Onana. He’s been fantastic since he was at Ajax.”
