Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is keen on signing a new goalkeeper ahead of the new season given his obvious doubts over Kepa Arrizabalaga.
The Blues have been linked with several goalkeepers as replacement for Arrizabalaga including AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma.
According to Daily Mail, Chelsea are preparing to keep Kepa Arrizabalaga amid major concerns his value has plummeted due to the coronavirus crisis.
It is believed Chelsea rejecting the chance to sign Donnarumma provides another indication the club intend to persist with Arrizabalaga.
Kepa joined Chelsea in the summer of 2018 for £72million, a world record for a goalkeeper, and the Blues will only consider selling the Spanish goalkeeper if the club will recoup the vast majority of his transfer fee.
Chelsea’s chances of receiving an offer close to the £72million paid to sign Arrizabalaga is highly unlikely due to the financial consequences of the coronavirus crisis.
Chelsea’s decision on Arrizabalaga leaves Lampard on a dilemma ahead of next season as he weighs up his goalkeeping options.
