CHELSEA have agree a deal to sign Trabzonspor goalkeeper Ugurcan Cakir with Kepa Arrizabalaga’s reign all-but over, according to reports.
Frank Lampard is seemingly desperate to sign a new No1 for the 2020-21 season after finally losing patience with the £71.6million man.

The Blues have been linked with Dean Henderson and Andre Onana in recent weeks.
Lampard is said to have asked Manchester United to “name their price” regarding the on loan Sheffield United ace.
And Ajax star Onana could be available for just £26m, with Lampard “in regular contact” with the Cameroonian.
Cakir, 24, is a shock name to suddenly enter the frame, with reports in Turkey claiming Chelsea have agreed to sign the red-hot goalkeeper.
The No1 has played a vital role in leading Trabzonspor to second in the Super Lig standings this season.

And Haber365 says Cakir has been so good he’s even caught the eye of Blues scouts.
The Turkish outlet claim Chelsea have agreed to a £30m fee to sign Cakir.
The report continues by saying the club and player are yet to agree personal terms.
Cakir has played 31 times in the Super Lig this season, conceding 35 times and keeping four clean sheets.
And he could now replace Kepa, whose patchy form has been a real cause for concern in West London.

Kepa eventually earned his place back but has failed to inspire confidence.
