Chelsea ‘Monitoring’ In-Demand Superstar Shot-Stopper Alongside Other Premier League Clubs

Chelsea are believed to be ‘monitoring’ the progress of Giorgi Mamardashvili, according to Fabrizio Romano on Twitter. Additionally, he also states that the Georgian shot-stopper is set to leave his current club, Valencia, in the summer.

The Blues are not the only ones who are thought to be interested in signing Mamardashvili – Tottenham Hotspur are also looking closely at him, while Leicester City are believed to have met with the player’s agent over the past couple of weeks. On top of this, Manchester United are also rumoured to be looking at him.

In Romano’s tweet, he wrote: “Georgian goalkeeper Giorgi Mamardashvili, expected to leave Valencia in any case at the end of the season despite contract extension signed few months ago.

“Told Chelsea and Tottenham are just monitoring his development; Leicester met with his agent 10 days ago.”

Chelsea are not necessarily in need of a new ‘keeper, but backup in that position could be useful. Kepa Arrizabalaga is always prone to a mistake, while Edouard Mendy has spent a significant amount of time injured during the current season.

Mamardashvili, aged just 22, is one of the most coveted young goalkeepers in the world at this current moment. He has featured in all of Valencia’s La Liga games this season, keeping five clean sheets along the way.

His contract at the Spanish club does not expire until 2027 – nevertheless, he is expected to leave regardless. He will not come cheap to any club that wishes to buy him – he currently has a release clause of £87.5 million.
