Manchester United are Chelsea have emerged as suitors for Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper Gregor Kobel, according to Blick.

The Red Devils are looking for a long-term replacement for David de Gea. At Chelsea, neither Kepa Arrizabalaga nor Edouard Mendy have lived up to expectations.

Bayern Munich have also been linked with a move for Kobel, but Dortmund are under no pressure to sell the Swiss goalkeeper, who is under contract until 2026.

Back in February, Kobel played down speculation linking him with Bayern, telling Sport Bild:

“I already play for a club with which I can win titles. I have extremely big plans with BVB and we are on a good path with our work. We have a huge chance to win something this season.”
