Chelsea transfer blow as Roman Burki signs new Dortmund deal until 2023 ending £15m interest as Kepa replacement

CHELSEA hopes of signing Borussia Dortmund’s Roman Burki have been quashed after the keeper signed a new deal.

Chelsea were hoping for a cut-price deal for the stopper with just a year left on his deal.

But they will have to look elsewhere with Dortmund confirming that their No1 has put pen-to-paper on a two-year contract extension.

Despite missing out on Burki, Lampard’s plans to sign a new keeper will cast serious doubts over Arrizabalaga’s long-term future.

The former Athletic Bilbao man became the most expensive keeper in world football when he sealed his £71.6m switch two years ago.

Arrizabalaga, 25, was axed in February for five games following a series of blunders.

Reports in Spain suggest Valencia are keen on a loan deal for Kepa.

The LaLiga giants fear losing Holland stopper Jasper Cillessen to his old club Ajax.

Lampard could turn his attention to Ajax’s Andre Onana but is likely to face competition from French giants Paris Saint-Germain.

Arrizabalaga’s future at Chelsea is left uncertain
