There have been a lot of criticisms surrounding Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, and reports even claim that the Blues are willing to let go of the Spaniard.

The Chelsea goalkeeper is now being linked with a sensational return to his club Athletic Bilbao. Chelsea broke the transfer record for a goalkeeper in 2018 as the Blues paid up to £71.6m for the 25-year-old.

Kepa currently earns wages of £170,000-per-week, and according to The Sun, it could be a stumbling block for the deal to happen.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard dropped Arrizabalaga for Chelsea’s 2-2 draw against Leicester City, as Willy Caballero was handed his first start of the season.

Speaking after the game at the King Power Stadium, Caballero said it’s a lesson for every goalkeeper.

Caballero told BT Sport: “It is our way as a goalkeeper when we don’t have the opportunity to play you have to keep the faith, keep training well and hope the opportunity arrives.

“You have to do properly during the week to be ready for this kind of opportunity.

“It is a lesson for every goalkeeper in the world. We must be ready any time.

“I enjoyed it so much. I am really happy to help the team, to play today.

“I made a few saves but the important thing is that the spirit of the team rescues one point here which is so difficult.”
