London: Premier League club Chelsea said it had completed the signing of Serbian goalkeeper Djordje Petrovic from the American New England Revolution.
Petrovic moved from Major League Soccer on a seven-year contract, with the club’s option for an additional year, becoming Chelsea’s 15th signing of the summer transfer window.
“It’s a big step for me and it’s always been my dream to sign for one of the biggest clubs in the world. Today I’ve achieved that goal and I’m very happy. Playing in the Premier League.” “The league is something I’m really looking forward to doing and I hope to learn many things here at Chelsea,” Petrovic told Chelsea’s official website. “I can’t wait to meet everyone and play at Stamford Bridge.”
The 23-year-old, who capped twice for Serbia, played 43 MLS games for New England. He made 21 appearances during the 2022 campaign and was nominated for MLS Rookie of the Year and MLS Goalkeeper of the Year.
With the signing of the Serbian international, the Blues add more depth to the goalkeeper department after the departure of Edouard Mendy to Al-Ahly in the Saudi Professional League, Kepa Arrizabalaga on loan to Real Madrid, and Gabriel Slonina on loan to the Open Cup. .
Chelsea’s next Premier League match will be at home to Nottingham Forest on September 2nd.
