Cumbrian goalkeeper James Trafford is the subject of new transfer speculation - with Chelsea reportedly on his trail.

The Burnley keeper, who is in the England provisional squad for Euro 2024, is being eyed by the Stamford Bridge outfit.

That's according to The Sun, who report that Chelsea are "ready to make a £20m bid" for the star from Greysouthen.

Trafford is regarded as a top long-term prospect despite a challenging first season in the Premier League.

He was Burnley's No1 for most of the campaign but lost his place to Arijanet Muric in the closing stages.

That did not dissuade Gareth Southgate from naming the England Under-21 star among his four keepers in the Three Lions training squad ahead of the Euros.

Reports earlier this summer have credited Newcastle United with interest in the ex-Carlisle United academy prospect.

The Sun, though, claim "sources close to the deal" fancy Chelsea as favourites for Trafford, following Burnley's relegation back to the Championship.

The potential move comes despite managerial uncertainty at both the bidding and selling clubs.

Chelsea recently announced the departure of Mauricio Pochettino, while Burnley boss Vincent Kompany is expected to leave for the top job at Bayern Munich.

Trafford is one of three Cumbrians in the England preliminary squad, with Jarrad Branthwaite and Dean Henderson also called up by Southgate.
