The Pride of London name Chelsea's apparent three transfer targets for the goalkeeper position. Soon-to-be manager Enzo Maresca is unhappy with the selection of stoppers at Stamford Bridge so desires a signing. This means that Djordje Petrovic and Robert Sanchez have been deemed unsatisfactory as respective No.1 choices. What is next for the Blues' unwanted duo in goal?

In addition to that story, PoL offer a verdict as Maresca is supposedly targeted to be appointed boss by FC Porto. Meanwhile, a welcome reunion is about to occur on Fulham Road.

Former Chelsea player to return to Bridge as Enzo Maresca's coach

With Maresca's imminent instillation taking up most of the media column inches, there hasn't been a lot of talk about the team of staff he'll bring with him to CFC. However, one name will be very familiar to Blues supporters: Willy Caballero.

Caballero has been described as the former Manchester City coach's 'righthand man' while at Leicester City. The former featured for Chels' in 38 fixtures altogether. Along the way he won the Europa League trophy, as well as the Champions League title. I am sure 42-year-old will be welcomed back to the Bridge with open arms.

Was Enzo Maresca at risk of being hijacked by a UCL outfit before joining the west Londoners?

Maresca is supposedly wanted at clubs other than Chelsea. Following a wonderful first season with the Foxes, the Italian is reportedly coveted by Portuguese team Porto.

While the Estadio do Dragao squad do compete at the highest levels, and won the Taca de Portugal very recently, they hardly compete with an offer to lead the Blues. Besides, Maresca is said to wish to test his capabilities as a head coach in the Premier League, generally considered the most demanding of all domestic divisions.

A priority acquisition designated for Enzo Maresca

The current LCFC man is already supposedly planning for his time at CFC before even being named as the successor to Mauricio Pochettino. There are multiple areas the 44-year-old would like to alter or improve.

Journalist Ben Jacobs has declared that neither Petrovic nor Sanchez are thought of as capable to continue in the Blues net. Therefore an heir is required in goal; this is the priority position to strengthen at the Bridge, it is claimed. So, which goalies are in the frame to become the first-choice at Chelsea? Let's learn about the trio of prospects:

"It is said that Chelsea are pressing ahead with their plans to recruit a new goalkeeper with the ability to better suit Maresca's system. Filip Jorgensen of Villarreal is believed to be a target but the 22-year-old is also admired by Newcastle, who are said to have already staged talks with his representatives.

Valencia stopper Giorgi Mamardashvili is also thought to be 'admired' by Chelsea, who were linked with his services earlier this year ahead of a possible summer move. It remains to be seen if a deal can be agreed with Valencia, though, given that Mamardashvili is tied down until 2027 with a release clause of around £85million.
