It has been a really tough season for Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, as the Spaniard has been in for criticisms all season long.

Kepa was signed in the summer of 2018, as the Blues triggered his £72m release clause, to make him the most expensive goalkeeper in the world.

The Spaniard has failed to live up to expected heights, and made so many mistakes this season.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard, has had to drop him off to the bench at times, and now, former Blues goalkeeper Mark Bosnich, has revealed that the best thing for club and player, is for Kepa to be sold this summer.

Mark Bosnich told Sky Sports: “There have been quite a few signs, you have to say, over quite some time now, over a period of months.

“He [Lampard] obviously, him and Kepa don’t see eye to eye for whatever reason that may be. And he’s out on the lookout for a new goalkeeper.

“There may be a problem in terms of the fact of how much money Chelsea have spent on the goalkeeper. You never know, Frank may be told from upstairs: ‘No, we’re going to stick with him and this is the way it is.’

“And there’s also that outside chance as well that the player, regardless of the fact that he’s not playing, might turn around – he’ll obviously be on very big wages – [and] say, ‘Well I’m staying here.’

“And then you’ve got that situation where the world’s most expensive goalkeeper’s sat on the bench.

“So I think that after what’s gone on, and watching it from afar, I think the amicable thing for both sides will be to make sure that Kepa gets sold and goes to another club, and Chelsea move on and get somebody else.”
