Chelsea FC are one of the clubs interested in signing young Turkish goalkeeper Berke Ozer from Altinordu this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Sun is reporting that the west London side hold a strong interest in signing the 17-year-old shot-stopper, who has already been called into Turkey’s senior national squad.

He has made a total of six appearances for his club side in all competitions this season and has been likened to AC Milan shot-stopper Gianluigi Donnarumma.

The same report says that Chelsea FC are keen on a move for the shot-stopper along with rivals Manchester City and FC Barcelona.

According to the same story, Chelsea FC have been trying to conclude a deal for Ozer by offering his club a partnership that would allow them to sign Blues players on loan.

Chelsea FC could be keen to bolster their goalkeeping options this summer amid the uncertainty about Thibaut Courtois’ future at the Stamford Bridge club.

The Belgian goalkeeper’s current contract is due to expire at the end of next season, meaning that the Blues could look to cash in this summer rather than risk losing him on a free transfer next year.
