Lazio goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha has reacted to speculation linking him with a move to Chelsea by stating his desire to one day play in the Premier League . Strakosha, 27, was Maurizio Sarri’s first-choice goalkeeper at Lazio this past season and impressed with his performances.

The Albanian shot-stopper made 31 appearances across all competitions, keeping 11 clean sheets. His impressive performances have seen him linked with both Chelsea and Premier League newcomers Fulham.

The Daily Mail reports that Strakoshais viewed by Thomas Tuchel as a potential replacement for Kepa Arriazabalaga, whose future at Stamford Bridge is uncertain. Strakosha was interviewed by transfer expert Fabrizio Romano and he told the Italian journalist of his dream to one day play in the English top flight. He told Romano:

I’ m really honored to be linked with a top club like Chelsea, it’s a dream. I’m dreaming of Premier League since I was a kid”

Strakosha will be available as a free agent following the expiration of his deal with Lazio which paves the way for a move to the English top-tier. As per the Mail report, Fulham's interest in the player stems from boss Marco Silva's desire to add valuable experience to his newly- promoted side.

With the Cottagers, the Albanian shot-stopper can expect to become the side's first-choice goalkeeper. However, he will have a hard time displacing Edouard Mendy at the Blues.
