Former Chelsea goalkeeper Asmir Begovic has backed Chelsea’s decision to sign Kepa Arrizabalaga after Thibaut Courtois left Chelsea for Real Madrid this summer.
Kepa became the world’s most expensive goalkeeper after his £71million move to Chelsea.
Begovic told talkSPORT: “I think he was performing quite well at Bilbao, coming through the ranks there and trying to break into the national team.
“So he’s definitely been on the scene for a little while.
“That’s just the way the market is going. Some prices are being thrown around and this is the price of doing business these days.
“From Chelsea’s view, this is a long-term move. It’s a seven-year deal and he’s at a great age so I think this is someone Chelsea can really build around for many years to come.”
