TRANSFER: Chelsea Agree Fee With Brighton For Goalkeeper, Sanchez

According to Sky, Chelsea have agreed a £25m deal with Brighton to sign goalkeeper Robert Sanchez.

The fee is inclusive of add-ons and a sell-on clause with Sanchez now set to undergo a medical at Chelsea.

Sanchez, 25, is expected to challenge Kepa Arrizabalaga for the number one spot.

The Blues have been looking to add a goalkeeper to their squad following the sale of Edouard Mendy to Al-Ahli in Saudi Arabia.

The Spaniard has been with the Seagulls since the age of 15, having joined their academy from Levante in 2013.

After loan spells with Forest Green and Rochdale, Robert Sanchez made his Brighton debut in November 2020 and became the Seagulls’ first-choice stopper for the best part of two years.

Robert Sanchez lost his place to Jason Steele in the second half of Brighton’s 2022-23 Premier League season.
