Opinion: Check out the Bundesliga goalkeeper that can help Chelsea retain the Champions League next season

After an impressive performance in the euro 2020 tournament, Borussia Monchengladbach and Switzerland goalkeeper Yann Sommer is likely to attract interest from top European clubs this summer, and Chelsea should not hesitate In signing him at Stamford bridge if they want to retain Europe's most prestigious trophy next season.

Anybody who watched Sommer's last two games against France and Spain In the euro 2020 tournament, will back the 32-year-old to win the best goalkeeper of the competition.

Needless to say, Yann Sommer was excellent against France, saving the decisive penalty from Kylian Mbappe that sent Switzerland to the quarterfinals. Against Spain, he was excellent throughout the entire period of the game. With the scores still at 1:1 and Switzerland playing with 10 men from the 77th minute, the swiss goalkeeper made some smart saves to deny the Spanish players the winning goal. He saved 9 out of 10 shots from open play. Though Switzerland were finally eliminated in the penalty shootouts, Sommer's performances cannot go unnoticed.

At the moment, Edouard Mendy is the only outstanding goalkeeper for Chelsea. Kepa Arizabalaga has not been in good form in recent games and Willy Caballero is released by the club.

With the above consideration, Yann Sommer could be the perfect signing for Chelsea this summer, if Chelsea can land him at Stamford Bridge, it will boost their chances of retaining the Champions League next season.
