The West London club recognizes the necessity of offloading peripheral players in order to maintain financial stability, despite the fact that they made important additions during the previous summer transfer window, such as Moises Caicedo, Romeo Lavia, and Nicolas Jackson.
Kepa Arrizabalaga, an accomplished goalkeeper, is rumored to be on the verge of leaving Chelsea, a Premier League team, permanently this year, according to rumors.
Over the course of the past several seasons, the Spanish international player, who is now 29 years old and joined Chelsea from Athletic Bilbao in 2018, has been given sporadic opportunity to play for the first team.
Kepa was a fixture for Chelsea throughout the 2022–2023 season, appearing in a total of 39 matches across all competitions. He was a key player for the club.
As a consequence of this, he was loaned to Real Madrid during the summer of 2023. Since then, he has participated in 17 matches across all competitions since the beginning of the current season.
Chelsea is reportedly interested in a permanent deal for Kepa Arrizabalaga and is keeping a careful eye on his status at Real Madrid, according to reports from Transfer News Live.
It has been stated that the club has shown a strong desire to part ways with the veteran goalie this year, and as a result, they have set an asking price of seventeen million pounds for him.
Mauricio Pochettino, the manager of Chelsea, is allegedly open to hearing transfer offers for the veteran goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga. Kepa Arrizabalaga is considered to be a member of Chelsea’s first squad who is not considered to be vital. However, it is still unclear whether prominent European teams will be willing to pay the transfer cost of £17 million that is necessary in order to secure a long-term contract with the Chelsea player.
