Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga is being linked with a potential loan move away from Stamford Bridge – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter believe his exit would make perfect sense.
The 26-year-old had a frustrating second season at the club last year that was stacked with individual errors, which is why manager Frank Lampard signed a new number one in Edouard Mendy in the summer.
Kepa has now fallen to second-choice goalkeeper with the Blues, plus he’s now third in the pecking order for national team Spain.
According to the Sun, Kepa believes his Chelsea career is at its end and is keen to try complete a move elsewhere in January.
It is claimed that the £150,000-a-week star would be willing to take a pay cut to depart on loan, as it would be a huge surprise if a club is willing to sign him permanently based off his poor time in the last year.
Despite being at an all-time low, it’s certainly worth remembering that the Spanish shot-stopper performed brilliantly in La Liga with Athletic Bilbao and had a decent first year with Chelsea under Maurizio Sarri.
A selection of Chelsea supporters on social media feel Kepa’s exit would make sense for all parties, with one insisting he should be far from the club’s training ground Cobham.
