Chelsea FC are considering deals to sign Jordan Pickford or Jack Butland if Thibaut Courtois leaves Stamford Bridge this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mail is reporting that the Blues are looking into the situations of both of the England internationals as Maurizio Sarri looks to strengthen his options between the posts.

Courtois’ situation at Stamford Bridge has been a constant source of speculation this summer because his current contract is due to expire at the end of next season.

The Belgian shot-stopper has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid, and it remains to be seen whether he will indeed be shipped out by Chelsea FC or not.

The same story now claims that Chelsea FC are looking into the possibility of signing either Butland or Pickford as they prepare for life without Courtois.

The article says that the Blues were keen on signing Alisson from AS Roma, but the goalkeeper ended up joining Liverpool FC in a big-money deal last week.

Chelsea FC are currently preparing for life under Sarri after his appointment as the club’s new manager last weekend.

The Blues will be aiming to at least break back into the top four next season.
