DATE OF BIRTH5 September 2002
Lucas Bergstrom is a goalkeeper who signed from Turun Palloseura in his native Finland during the 2018/19 season.
At 6’7, he is a very tall and imposing keeper who made his youth team debut in the final game of the 2018/19 season, keeping a clean sheet in a 2-0 win at Reading. He has also represented Finland at Under-16 level.
He signed his scholarship deal in July 2019 and turned professional in September that year. A knee injury has restricted the keeper to four appearances for the Under-18s during the campaign.
After joining Andy Myers' development squad for the 2020/21 season and making 12 Academy starts by Christmas, there was a new contract for Bergstrom who committed himself to Chelsea until June 2024.
