Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga wanted by Valencia in loan transfer after being dropped by boss Frank Lampard

KEPA ARRIZABALAGA could reportedly be offered an escape route out of Chelsea by Valencia.

The 25-year-old became the world’s most-expensive goalkeeper when the Blues forked out £71million to sign him from Athletic Bilbao in 2018.

But he has fallen out of favour under Frank Lampard this campaign with the West London side possibly looking to offload him once the transfer window re-opens.

And now Mundo Deportivo claim LaLiga’s Valencia want the Spaniard on loan.

The stopper is viewed as an ideal replacement for Jasper Cillessen, who is being linked with a move away from the Mestalla.

Speculation is mounting that the Dutch ‘keeper could be heading back to ex-club Ajax.

However, the same report also states a potential deal would also depend on Chelsea bringing in Ajax’s Andre Onana before they would entertain allowing Kepa to depart.

Kepa was dropped by Lampard after a string of erratic performances.

Veteran Willy Caballero was preferred against Leicester, Manchester United, Tottenham and Bayern Munich prior to the coronavirus shutdown.

The star is desperate to get maximum playing time next season as he tries to overthrow David De Gea to become Spain’s No.1 for the European Championship.
