Chelsea have identified Lille goalkeeper Mike Maignan as a potential replacement for Kepa Arrizabalaga ahead of next season.
Arrizabalaga had an average 2019/2020 campaign with the Blues and he ended the season with the worst save percentage in the Premier League.
According to Le 10 Sport, the Blues are lining up a move for Maignan, who is free to leave Lille at the right price during the current transfer window.
It is added that the west London giants could make a formal bid to sign the Frenchman once they have offloaded Arrizabalaga, possibly on loan.
Arrizabalaga is currently valued at £50m, but they are no suitors for his services on a permanent deal due to the present financial situation.
As a result, he could only leave the Blues on a temporary basis. The likes of Valencia and ex-club Athletic Bilbao are keen on luring him back to Spain.
