According to reports in England Chelsea are lining up a £9million move for Genk keeper Thibaut Courtois.

New boss Andre Villas-Boas see the 19-year-old Belgian, who helped Genk win the Belgian title last season, as a possible long-term successor to current No 1 Petr Cech.

Should Chelsea land the Courtois then they could send him back to Genk on loan as part of the deal – or even to Atletico Madrid who need a new custodian to replace David De Gea.

Despite being named in Belgium’s squad for the European qualifier against Turkey Courtois has yet to win a cap.
