Man United and Chelsea want Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper Gregor Kobel

Manchester United and Chelsea are interested in signing Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper Gregor Kobel, reports Swiss outlet Blick.

The Switzerland international is also on Bayern Munich’s radar.

Blick is under contract until 2026, and Dortmund are not under any pressure to sell him.

The 25-year-old has established himself as one of the best goalies in the Bundesliga.

Chelsea want to improve their options in goal with neither Kepa Arrizabalaga nor Edouard Mendy impressing.

The Blues saw Kobel in action during the first leg of their Champions League round of 16 tie.

The Swiss kept a clean sheet at the Signal Iduna Park in his side’s 1-0 win and will hope to impress at Stamford Bridge in the return leg.

It appears he caught the eyes of the west London club with his performances a fortnight ago.

Chelsea will face competition from Man United for Kobel’s services.

The Red Devils want a long-term replacement for David de Gea and the former Stuttgart man is on their radar.

The Spaniard is out of contract in 2024, and Man United want him to sign a new deal on reduced wages.

The 32-year-old has been at Old Trafford since 2011 and made 523 appearances.

De Gea has kept 181 clean sheets for the Red Devils, but they are preparing for life without him.

Kobel has kept 11 clean sheets in 24 games across all competitions for Dortmund this term.

They are level on points with Bayern but are in second place in the Bundesliga after 22 games.

Kobel’s contributions have been crucial to Dortmund’s impressive campaign.

More clubs will likely emerge for his services in the summer, and Chelsea and Man United must be convincing to win the race.
