Chelsea manager Frank Lampard made a bold statement by dropping Kepa Arrizabalaga for Willy Caballero for the game against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Saturday.

Kepa has failed to impress in goal since his £71.6m world record transfer to the club from Athletic Bilbao.

According to reports, Frank Lampard has identified Burnley’s Nick Pope and Crystal Palace’s Vicente Guaita as his two top targets to replace Kepa Arrizabalaga in goal.

However, the Daily Mirror claim that Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia – who was instrumental in bringing Kepa to Stamford Bridge – is less than impressed at the prospect of allowing Kepa to leave for less than the price they paid Athletic Bilbao in 2018.

Kepa has failed to justify his price tag and Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is already losing patience with the Spaniard who has the worst stat in the division.

Arrizabalaga has conceded 32 goals in just 24 Premier League matches and he has been heavily criticised this season following a series of errors that has led to goals.
