The Belgian international is in his third season on loan with Spanish giants Atletico Madrid, with Petr Cech still in firm possession of the number one jersey at Stamford Bridge.

But with other top European sides circling around Courtois following his impressive performances in Spain, it is looking increasingly like Mourinho will need to choose between 31-year-old Cech and his understudy in the near future.

And according to Belgian journalist Kristof Terreur, Courtois is set to hold talks with the Chelsea boss over the next few weeks.

‘My agent is talking with Chelsea. One of the coming weeks I’ll have a chat with José Mourinho,’ the 21-year-old is reported to have said.
