According to reports, a £12 million summer signing by Chelsea is now training with Potter’s squad after being out on loan.
Gabriel Slonina is said to have returned to Chelsea after a loan spell with Chicago Fire.
The young goalkeeper arrived at Cobham and began training with Graham Potter’s senior squad for the first time, according to the Evening Standard.
Slonina arrived at the club’s facilities only recently, despite being signed from Chicago Fire for £12 million in the summer.
Chelsea returned the goalkeeper to the MLS side for the remainder of the season.
Todd Boehly and his team decided to recall their new recruit because the American top flight was over until February.
What is Gabriel Slonina’s next step at Chelsea?
Slonina was always intended to be integrated into the Premier League club’s project at the start of 2023.
That strategy has clearly been advanced as Boehly continues to build for the future.
He might even be paving the way for the future.
Edouard Mendy has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge, according to persistent rumours.
Mendy has apparently failed to impress Boehly or Potter enough to keep his place as a Chelsea player.
Several goalkeepers have been mentioned as possible replacements for the Senegal international.

Jordan Pickford, Emi Martinez, and Dominik Livakovic are just a few of the potential goalkeepers.
However, Boehly could save his money and ask Potter to play Slonina in the first team, possibly replacing Mendy.
