According to Metro, Frank Lampard has prioritised a move for Lille goalkeeper Mike Maignan ahead of the summer transfer window.

Kepa Arrizabalaga has failed to live up to his world-record £71.6million price tag and was dropped for Chelsea’s 2-2 draw against Leicester City on Saturday.

Lampard has reportedly told the Chelsea board he wants Kepa to be sold at the end of the season and replaced with Maignan.

The 24-year-old Frenchman came through Paris Saint-Germain’s academy and has made over 100 appearances for Lille since joining the club back in 2015.

Burnley’s Nick Pope and Crystal Palace’s Vicente Guaita are also reportedly on Chelsea’s shortlist.
