The Serbian goalkeeper is expected to be announced in the coming days as a replacement for Kepa Arrizabalaga who left in the last minutes to Real Madrid.
Chelsea secured their first league win of the season with Raheem Sterling reminding everyone that he’s still got an appetite for the game with a brilliant brace.
New signing Nicolas Jackson opened his account from a sharp Sterling cross to seal the victory for the Blues and manager Mauricio Pochettino who was delighted with the win also admitted they would only add to the team if the profile of the player is right.
He told reporters when asked about signing a new goalkeeper: “We need at least one keeper,” Pochettino said on Thursday. “We have very talented young keepers but they need time.
“We need more and then we were talking about one offensive player, the right profile. “If we can add the right profile, yes, but not to bring players so we can add one more.”
Chelsea gave a full debut to Moises Caicedo and despite a slippery start to the game impressed while Enzo Fernandez displayed his wide range of passing in the impressive.
Raheem Sterling who looked a pale shadow of his brilliant self last season has said he wants to be the club’s top scorer and changed his diet to rediscover his form.
Sterling said: “I had a conversation with the gaffer earlier last week, and we have gone through the role and I know exactly what he needs from me and it is simple as that. I need to get on the back foot, and drive at players which is when I am most effective.
“Mindset-wise, I came with excuses but that is finished. I always try to analyse what I have been doing, what I have done wrong or what I can change.”
The Blues will hope they make light work of AFC Wimbledon in their next game before Nottingham Forest visits the Stamford Bridge at the weekend.
