A number of Chelsea fans would be expecting the last campaign to be Kepa Arrizabalaga’s last season for Chelsea, but that might not be so.
Chelsea signed the Spaniard in 2018 for a world record fee for a goalkeeper, but the 25-year-old struggled especially in his second year at the club, prompting Chelsea boss Frank Lampard to turn to second choice Willy Caballero at times.
Meanwhile, Chelsea legendary goalkeeper Petr Cech, who’s currently serving as the club’s technical and performance advisor, has revealed that Kepa won’t be leaving the club, although he didn’t rule out the possibility of a new goalkeeper joining the club.
“Kepa struggled last season, that is unquestionable,” Cech told Sport.cz.
“But the club invested in him and gave him a long-term contract because they believe he has the qualities and attributes to be successful.
“Additions will be made to the squad, perhaps even in goal, and this is what is being discussed now. ‘But nobody is giving up on Kepa and we all hope he has a great future.”
