According to The Sun, Chelsea have identified a replacement for replacement for under-fire goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Arrizabalaga has been in poor form lately with Chelsea fans questioning the club’s decision to pay £71.6million, a record for a goalkeeper, to sign him from Atletic Bilbao.

Chelsea scouts have identified 27 year old Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope as a possible replacement for Arrizabalaga.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard admitted after the 2-2 draw against Arsenal on Tuesday night that certain aspects of Kepa’s game could be improved on.

Lampard said: “I know there’s a focus on him at the minute. That’s top line football.

“Yes, with his feet, a couple of times today he took too long and he nearly gave it away. That can sometimes change the momentum of a game that he will know, has to look at and we will have to look at.”
