Why Chelsea shouldn’t sign a goalkeeper in the summer – Glen Johnson

Former Chelsea right-back Glen Johnson believes incoming Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino should keep faith with goalkeeping duo Edouard Mendy and Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Chelsea is interested in signing Inter Milan goalkeeper Andre Onana while Thomas Tuchel wants to reunite with Edouard Mendy at Bayern Munich.

“It’s not a signing that I’m fully against, but I just don’t believe that Chelsea need another goalkeeper right now,” Johnson told Betfred.

“£40million is a lot of money for a goalkeeper but they did spend almost double that on Kepa, so Chelsea already has two well regarded goalkeepers at the club.

“I don’t believe Chelsea need to focus on recruiting in this position right now as both Edouard Mendy and Kepa are very good on their day. I’d only sign Andre Onana if one of those two were to leave the club for big money.

“I think he [Mendy] would be a big loss to Chelsea. He’s another player that’s seemed to struggle with the chaos at Chelsea at present, but when he had stable foundations around him when he first moved to the Premier League, then he seemed to be one of the best.

“You can understand why Bayern Munich want him but I believe Chelsea should do all they can to keep him as I believe he’s their number one.”
