Chelsea To Send Goalkeeper Kepa On Loan To Laliga Giant

With Frank Lampard confirming that Edouard Mendy is the club’s first-choice goalkeeper, Kepa Arrizabalaga is believed to be considering an exit in January.

According to a report by Estadio Deportivo, the Spanish international is keen on returning to LaLiga and that Sevilla are amongtst the interested clubs.

The Blues would be open to send Kepa out on loan for the remainder of the 2020-21 season.

On Kepa's arrival at Stamford Bridge three years ago from Athletic Bilbao, he became the world’s most expensive goalkeeper.

After a good first season, Kepa began to make mistakes under Maurizio Sarri and later on Lampard.

Last season he had one of the lowest save percentages of the Premier League and that made Chelsea decide to sign a new goalkeeper with Mendy.

Kepa decided to stay at Chelsea and he was confident he would be able to hold his position in  goal.

And now that Lampard has openly confirmed that Mendy will be the club’s new No. 1 goalkeeper, Kepa is open to leaving the club in January.

Kepa has favored a move back to LaLiga and Sevilla are willing to grant him his wish.
