The FA Cup holders quickly moved to replace Thibaut Courtois after agreeing to sell the Belgian international to Real Madrid for £ 35 million on the penultimate day of the transfer window.
Spanish international goalkeeper Kep Arrizabalaga became the most expensive goalkeeper in the history by completing a £ 71m move from Athletic Bilbao and made his debut in Saturday's 3-0 win over Huddersfield.
However, the Times claims it could have been Atletico Madrid's star Jan Oblak siding at the Kirklees Stadium if he had not turned down a move for Stamford Bridge.
