REPORTS: Chelsea put a £50m price-tag on Kepa Arrizabalaga

Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge for a while now, and reports in the media claim that the Blues have now set a £50m price tag for him.

The rumors of his departure hit media houses once again on Sunday when Frank Lampard opted to play his second choice shot-stopper, Willy Caballero, against Wolves in their final match of the season.

Caballero kept a clean sheet in the 2-0 victory as the Blues ensured Champions League qualification.

The Daily Mail now reports that Chelsea will not accept anything below £50m for Kepa, even though they bought him for £72m from Athletic Bilbao in 2018.

The paper adds that the Blues will also accept loan offers for the Spaniard, should the interested party agree to pay a large chunk of his salary.

Lampard is supposedly heading up Chelsea's search for a new number one, with a recent report claiming that the Blues had narrowed their shortlist down to Ajax's Andre Onana and Atletico Madrid's Jan Oblak.

Chelsea play Arsenal next in the FA Cup Final, and with such rumors flying in the media, Lampard might just opt for Caballero again.
