Chelsea boss Graham Potter has made Brighton goalkeeper and Spain international Robert Sanchez as the “main target” to replace Edouard Mendy between the sticks, according to journalist Simon Phillips.

Potter wants to reunite with the Spanish goalkeeper at Stamford Bridge as the English manager aims to bring reinforcements in that area.

With Kepa struggling with injuries and Mendy falling down the pecking order, Potter needs a strong shot-stopper to fulfill the hopes of Todd Boehly.

Sanchez’s contract at Brighton runs until 2025 and Brighton will reportedly demand for £50million for the Spanish goalkeeper.

In an interview with GIVEMESPORT, Phillips said: “At the moment I’m told that Sanchez from Brighton is the main target to replace him.

“They have looked at Jordan Pickford and they have been watching him again recently on scouting missions, but at the moment, Sanchez, purely because Potter knows him, Potter had him at Brighton, he’s the main target to replace Mendy.“
