Chelsea maintains an interest in Giorgio Mamardashvili, as they could reportedly target a new goalkeeper in the new window.

According to 90 Min, Chelsea are increasingly looking likely to target a new goalkeeper and have added Giorgio Mamardashvili to their shortlist. The 22-year-old La Liga star who plays his trade with Valencia remains a possibility, but any move will depend on his asking price.

Giorgio Mamardashvili has silently made his mark as an important player for Valencia since joining the club. The Georgian has had a good spell with Los Che, which attracted the interest of many top-rated clubs during the recently closed summer window.

Mamardashvili packs energy into his game and could bring the quality of modern keepers. Top teams are increasingly looking for stoppers who have more attributes in them than only the basics. Chelsea was keen before the summer window but chose to take a different path.

In fact, they chose to overhaul their goalkeeping personnel after selling Edouard Mendy to Saudi Arabia and sending Kepa Arrizabalaga to Real Madrid on loan. The latter departure wasn’t planned, and in the aftermath, they signed Djorde Petrovic.

Robert Sanchez arrived from Brighton in a £25 million deal. He replaced Kepa as Chelsea’s No.1. However, the Spaniard has been far from convincing so far, as Chelsea have struggled for relevance since the start of the current season.

The report names many keepers as part of their potential shortlist. The story increasingly points at the possibility of a new keeper arriving in the next window. Coincidentally, the Daily Mail’s Sami Mokbel also linked them with a move for Arsenal star Aaron Ramsdale, with the England international’s place now threatened by David Raya.

On Mamardashvili, the 22-year-old La Liga star attracted the interest of top clubs. Those included Real Madrid, who reportedly failed with a move in the aftermath of Thibaut Courtois’ injury. However, Chelsea are also keen on the Valencia star.

Valencia reportedly put him up for sale in a bid to generate funds during the previous window. For their asking price, no club showed an interest in signing Mamardashvili, but the possibilities of a future departure remain intact.

Chelsea could explore a move for the Georgian in the next window, but that will depend on his asking price. Moreover, they could also evaluate how Sanchez performs between now and January to determine if signing a new stopper is an absolute necessity.
