According to the Athletic, joining Chelsea or moving to Spain are the two most likely destinations for Brighton goalkeeper Robert Sanchez.

Chelsea need another keeper to compete with Kepa Arrizabalaga after Edouard Mendy’s departure to Al Ahli and the Blues are reportedly interested in signing the 25 year old Spanish goalkeeper.

Sanchez is expected to leave Brighton this summer after failing to make the squad for their pre-season tour of the USA.

Brighton signing Netherlands Under-21 international Bart Verbruggen from Anderlecht for £16.3million sent a clear message that there’s no room for Sanchez, who has two years left on his contract.

Brighton are reportedly open to Sanchez leaving the Amex stadium this summer, whether on loan or on a permanent deal.
