Out-of-favour Chelsea star emerges as priority summer target for London rivals

The Blues’ second-string goalkeeper Caballero wanted by West Ham

Chelsea FC News: West Ham are plotting a move for Chelsea goalkeeper Willy Caballero, according to Evening standard.

The 37-year-old has fallen down the pecking order in recent years as he managed to make only 7 appearances in last two seasons.

And the arrival of Kepa Arrizabalaga, the world’s most expensive goalkeeper, to Stamford Bridge further worsened the situation of Caballero.

The Spaniard endured an eventful first season yet managed to keep Caballero at the bench.

Given this, the Hammers want to acquire the Argentine shot-stopper as a back up for the primary shot-stopper Lukasz Fabianski.

The Polish keeper won the Hammers player of the season award and Manuel Pellegrini is in need of perfect cover who could ease the workload of Fabianski.

The Hammers would definitely benefit a lot from Caballero given his vast amount of experience across Europe.

The former Manchester City goalkeeper also featured in the FIFA World Cup 2018 for Argentina but was censured for his horrific display against Croatia in the group stage.

Commencing his professional career with Boca Juniors, Caballero has played foror Spanish clubs Elche and Malaga.

The Blues were dealt with a transfer blow after  FIFA imposed a ban in the upcoming two transfer windows and this might could inflict the Hammers’ move to Caballero.
