And the Blues are banking on a cut-price deal as he only has one year left on his contract.

Burki, 29, has played more than 150 games for the Bundesliga club and is up for a Prem switch.

It is a further sign Kepa has failed to convince boss Frank Lampard he can be his long-term No 1.

Signing Burki would leave Kepa in limbo just two years after his club-record £71.6m move.

The Spaniard, 25, was axed in February for five games following a series of blunders.

Kepa is the world’s most expensive keeper at £71.4milion and fears he could be priced out of a transfer away.

Yet if Chelsea land Burki on the cheap they may decide to cut their loses on the unsettled star.

And reports in Spain suggest Valencia are keen on a loan deal for Kepa.

The LaLiga giants fear losing Holland stopper Jasper Cillessen to his old club Ajax.
