Chelsea are now ready to sanction a loan exit for Kepa Arrizabalaga after securing the signing of Edouard Mendy from Rennes.
The Senegal international was yesterday announced as the Blues’ seventh signing with the side’s new No.1 reportedly joining for a fee of £22m.
According to the Sun, Frank Lampard is looking to loan out Kepa before the transfer deadline, with Chelsea willing to listen to proposals for the 25-year-old.
The Spaniard once again proved that he’s not fit for the No.1 role after a costly error in the defeat to Liverpool.
Kepa, who became the world’s most expensive goalkeeper when he joined Chelsea, has still been Chelsea’s prime option between the sticks despite a terrible year.
The Sun surprisingly report that Chelsea still hope to recoup around £40m from Kepa next summer, as long as the ace experiences a decent loan spell away from all the pressure and attention.
Whilst the Sun doesn’t explicitly mention any sides interested in the ace, hopefully, his out-of-form poor performances won’t hinder the stoppers loan out.
