Chelsea move to sign Giorgi Mamardashvili and Jorgensen

The Blues are in the market for a new goalkeeper once again despite signing both Djordje Petrovic and Robert Sanchez last summer on permanent deals. Mamardashvili has been admired by Chelsea for quite some time now.

The club sent scouts to watch him in the second half of the 2022/23 season initially, where they were watching numerous players including the Georgia international. Notably, Chelsea scouts were said to be left ‘highly impressed’ by his performance against Real Madrid last May, with Valencia winning 1-0.

Mamardashvili has three years left to run on his contract at the Mestalla but has been strongly linked with a move away ahead of the 2024 summer transfer window. The 23-year-old shot-stopper is very much still of interest to Chelsea as the club’s co-sporting directors Paul Winstanley and Laurence Stewart assess their options.

Filip Jorgensen from Villarreal is another option for Chelsea. It is understood the Blues have been in touch with the goalkeeper’s representatives recently to discuss whether he would be keen on switching Spain for England.

Meanwhile, Kepa Arrizabalaga looks likely to leave the club this summer. Chelsea will be hoping to offload the Spaniard, who is on loan at Champions League finalists Real Madrid, on a permanent basis. However, they have struggled to do that in the past because of the goalkeeper’s wage demands.

Another loan move could be on the cards but it appears very unlikely that Kepa has a future at Stamford Bridge. Gabriel Slonina will return from his loan spell in Belgium but another temporary move could be viable for the young American.

Elsewhere, Chelsea are also keen on signing a new centre-back. And they may even look to bring in two central defenders if Trevoh Chalobah was to leave the club. The Blues are thought to be open to selling the Cobham graduate this summer because of Profitability and Sustainability Rules (PSR).

Likewise, Conor Gallagher could leave and that could force the club into the market for a new central midfielder. Chelsea are also keen on attacking reinforcements, with both a wide player and a centre-forward being considered ahead of a busy summer window.
