Roman Burki: Chelsea want Dortmund goalkeeper to replace under-fire Kepa Arrizabalaga

- Kepa has struggled for form this season and was dropped for five Premier League games back in February

- Roman Burki has been identified as a potential replacement for the world's most expensive goalkeeper

- Burki has just a year left on his current Dortmund deal and he has not hid his desire to play in the EPL

Chelsea have reportedly lined up a shock £15million transfer bid for Borussia Dortmund shot-stopper Roman Burki.

The Blues are said to be eyeing the fast-rising Swiss goalkeeper to replace Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Kepa has significantly fallen out-of-favour at Stamford Bridge since his record move to the club two years ago.

Despite playing an important role under former boss Maurizio Sarri, the Spaniard appears to have failed to convince Frank Lampard he deserves remain his long-term No1.

SunSport reports Kepa fears he could be priced out of a transfer away with Chelsea already willing to let him leave.

La Liga giant Valencia are already thought to be keen on a loan deal for Kepa as they fear they could lose current stopper Jasper Cillessen to Dutch giants Ajax.

On his part, Burki is looking to move to the Premier League as he nears the end of his current deal with Dortmund.

Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Ghanaian football legend Michael Essien explained that ex Ivory Coast international Didier Drogba played a significant role in making him to snub Manchester United for Chelsea.

Michael Essien was in the best form of his life when he was playing for Lyon in France in which he was wanted by many clubs in Europe.

Among the clubs who wanted to sign the African football star then were Manchester United, Tottenham and Chelsea which was a great battle.

During this time in 2005, current Spurs boss Jose Mourinho was the manager at Chelsea and it will be recalled that the Portuguese made his team round African stars.

Essien stated that he was in Malouda's house on that day that Didier Drogba called the Frenchman asking him about how he could speak with him.

Malouda then gave the phone to Micheal Essien in which he spoke with Drogba and the Ivorian made him to understand that he will succeed at Stamford Bridge.
