Chelsea target Brighton goalkeeper as Begovic replacement
Premier League leaders Chelsea are planning to lure David Stockdale to Stamford Bridge once his contract expires with Brighton & Hove Albion in the summer.
The former Fulham shot-stopper has been particular impressive for the Seagulls in the second half of the campaign, and this has earned them top-flight promotion after a 34-year wait.
According to The Star, the Blues are weighing up a move for the Englishman, who has yet to extend his terms with the newly-promoted outfit.
Brighton are said to have already tabled a two-year contract on the table, but Antonio Conte's side are neverless lining up a contract offer to tempt him to west London.
The arrival of a new goalkeeper at Stamford Bridge is likely to coincide with the exit of Asmir Begovic, who is desperate for first-team football as a domestic rival next season.
Begovic was the subject of interest from Bournemouth during the previous transfer window, but Chelsea failed to find a suitable replacement in order to let him go.
