Chelsea are interested in signing Fulham goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli, Sky sources understand

The Blues are currently searching for a new goalkeeper, having allowed No 2 Asmir Begovic to leave for Bournemouth in a £10m deal.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is keen to add fresh competition for Thibaut Courtois, with Portuguese veteran Eduardo the only other goalkeeper in his first-team squad.

Bettinelli played a key role in Fulham's end of season surge for the Sky Bet Championship play-offs, featuring in their final six league matches of the campaign.

The 25-year-old, capped once at England U21 level, also played in both legs of Fulham's play-off semi-final against Reading.
