Chelsea target Thomas Strakosha has shown his delight amid links to a move to Stamford Bridge, writes the TTC.
Speaking to Fabrizio Romano, the Lazio man stated his desire to play Premier League football, following reported interest from the Blues.
The goalkeeper is set to leave the Italian club this summer, ending a decade long spell with the club.
He kept seven clean sheets in just 23 appearances for Maurizio Sarri’s side, who narrowly missed out on Champions League qualification.
Rumours had originally claimed newly promoted Fulham were keen on a deal for the Albanian, however interest from down the road in West London could be about to see them overlooked.
Playing in England is something which excites Strakosha, as he spoke to Romano about the exciting situation he finds himself in.
He said: “I’m really honoured to be linked with a top club like Chelsea, it’s a dream. I’m dreaming of Premier League since I was a kid.”
Strakosha is likely being touted as a potential replacement for Kepa Arrizabalaga, who is speculated to be on the move this summer in a hunt for first team football.
However, he will no doubt be looking to provide competition to Edouard Mendy, with the Senegalese shot stopper establishing himself as one of the best ‘keepers in the world.
