Thomas Strakosha has spoken of his delight at being linked with Chelsea.

The Albanian goalkeeper is out of contract at Serie A club Lazio and had been strongly touted for a move to Fulham, before the interest from Stamford Bridge arose.

He told the Here We Go podcast: “I’m really honoured to be linked with a top club like Chelsea, it’s a dream.

“I’ve been dreaming of the Premier League since I was a kid.”

Chelsea are described in media reports as interested in Strakosha as a potential replacement for Kepa Arrizabalaga, who is said to be a target for Lazio where old Blues boss Maurizio Sarri is in charge.

Elsewhere, Chelsea are confident of completing a deal for Jules Kounde despite late interest from Barcelona.

Sevilla have reportedly told the LaLiga giants that a player-exchange deal involving Clement Lenglet or Sergino Dest is not of interest with Kounde valued at £51million.
