Chelsea ready to listen offers for under-fire goalkeeper

Chelsea are reportedly willing to part ways with Spanish goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga for £50m when the summer transfer window will be re-opened.

Speculation has been rife surrounding the Spaniard’s future in recent weeks, with West London club, head-coach, Frank Lampard adding fuel to the fire by benching Spaniard for Willy Caballero on the final day of the English top-tier.

Caballero kept a clean sheet in the Blues final-day victory over Wolves as the Blues ensured Champions League qualification, and Frank Lampard is reportedly desperate for Kepa to depart from the squad ahead of the next campaign.

The Blues made the Spaniard the world’s most expensive stopper when they forked out £72m to sign him from La Liga outfits, Athletic Bilbao back in 2018, however, the Daily Mail claims that the Blues are prepared to take a financial hit to offload the shot-stopper.

The report suggests that Lampard’s side will not accept any offers below £50m for Spaniard, although the West London club would be open to loan deals should the interested party agree to pay a large chunk of his per week salary.

Lampard is supposedly heading up the Blues search for a new number one, with a recent report suggesting that the Blues had narrowed their shortlist down to Dutch giants, Ajax stopper Andre Onana and Atletico Madrid’s key man Jan Oblak.
