Chelsea willing to let Kepa Arrizabalaga leave this summer

According to reports, Chelsea would consider any bids made for goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga during the summer transfer window.

Arrizabalaga has slipped down the Stamford Bridge pecking order after the signing of Edouard Mendy in 2020 and is currently viewed as a backup option for head coach Thomas Tuchel.

The Daily Mirror claims that the 27-year-old is looking for consistent first-team action, and because Chelsea cannot promise that, the club is open to receiving bids for the Spaniard this summer.

According to the source, Arrizabalaga makes roughly £150,000 per week, so any interested team would have to be willing to cover the majority of his salary if the goalkeeper were to move on loan.

Since Arrizabalaga hasn't played for Spain since July 2020, he may find it difficult to make Luis Enrique's 26-man World Cup squad if he spends more time on the substitutes' bench. Arrizabalaga is trying to push his way into Luis Enrique's squad for the 2022 World Cup.

Nice of Ligue 1 is said to be interested in the former Athletic Bilbao player, while Lazio of Maurizio Sarri is also said to be interested in the goalkeeper, who Chelsea acquired in 2018 for a record-breaking £72 million.
