Chelsea are monitoring Stoke City goalkeeper Jack Butland, according to the latest report in the Sun.
Chelsea’s first-team goalkeepers Thibaut Courtois and Asmir Begovic have both been linked with moves way from the club recently, and the report states that Chelsea are still not certain whether either of them will stay at the club for next season.
Courtois has refused to commit his future to the club, and this has alerted La Liga giants Real Madrid, who are closely monitoring the situation.
The Blues signed Begovic from Stoke City last summer, but the lack of playing time has prompted him to look for a way out of the club. The West London are expected to move for Butland if the goalkeeper situation at the club doesn’t resolve soon.

Meanwhile, Calciomercato claims that Chelsea manager Antonio Conte wants to sign Juventus forward Alvaro Morata in the summer.
It has been widely reported that Real Madrid will exercise their buy-back clause to bring the Spanish international back to Santiago Bernabeu and later sell him for a profit.
Arsenal have also been linked with a move for Morata and Juventus are also expected to make a counter-offer to Real to keep the forward in Turin.
