Chelsea considering deal for goalkeeper after he arrives at training ground for trial

CHELSEA are considering a swoop for Latvian goalkeeper Reinis Reinholds.

The 19-year-old, who finished the season in Italy’s third division, is on trial with the Premier League champions.

Reinholds arrived at Chelsea’s Cobham HQ earlier this week and has a few days to impress, according to Football London.

He is out of contract at Racing Roma after joining the Lega Pro club on a short-term deal in December.

Reinholds, who kept four clean sheets in 19 league appearances, knows Chelsea’s goalkeeping coach Gianluca Spinelli.

In February, his agent Camillo Autieri said: ”Chelsea is great club and English football is wonderful.

“I know the goalkeeper trainer in Chelsea, Gianluca Spinelli, and he is a big professional.

“Gianluca knows Reinis and for sure he could give a positive impression about him.”

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is likely to need goalkeeping back-up ahead of their return to the Champions League.

Asmir Begovic looks set to join Bournemouth while third-choice Eduardo is out of contract next month.
