Some Chelsea fans react to Kepa's impressive shot-stopping in Spain training

Some Chelsea fans reacted to Kepa Arrizabalaga’s impressive training footage on international duty with Spain, amid questions over his future at Stamford Bridge.

The 25-year-old is currently away with the rest of Spain squad for their UEFA Nations League fixtures against Germany and Ukraine.

However, it is an understatement to say the goalkeeper is still at risk of losing his number one spot when he returns to West London.

Chelsea’s technical and performance advisor Petr Cech has previously said the club have not given up on their record transfer despite the disastrous 2019/20 campaign in which he conceded 47 goals from 33 starts in the Premier League.

However, the former Czech international also dropped some hints about potential new goalkeepers as he told Sport.cz: “A certain addition to the staff will definitely take place, perhaps even on the goalkeeper post, but all this is being solved.”

A recent report from the Telegraph also claimed that Arrizabalaga is prepared to stay and fight for his spot under Frank Lampard, even if Chelsea were to sign another goalkeeper, with Rennes stopper Edouard Mendy mentioned as a potential summer addition.

Recent training footage shared by Spain on social media could arguably be taken as a positive response from Arrizabalaga, since it illustrates a significant improvement in his shot-stopping.

The video has gained mixed reactions from some Chelsea fans, however, as there were still those who remain uncertain over the goalkeeper’s ability to be Lampard’s number one.
