Chelsea boss Frank Lampard reportedly doesn’t like Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

This is according to Gary Neville, who believes Chelsea have a big problem on our hands due to the amount spent on signing Arrizabalaga.

Chelsea have been linked with Edouard Mendy, Jan Oblak, Nick Pope and Andre Onana in recent weeks but Mendy has emerged as the most likely to join Chelsea this summer.

Discussing the situation with Stadium Astro, Manchester United legend Neville said: “Lampard will act, he’s [Kepa] not settled at all at Chelsea and he’s not been particularly good.

“David de Gea has been good at United for five or six years so I think he deserves more credit and more of a chance because he has come through a difficult early period but then he was world-class for four of five seasons and was Manchester United’s player of the year.

“Kepa is struggling at Chelsea and I don’t think Frank Lampard fancies him.”

Neville added: “The problem they’ve got is that they spent £70m on him which is just an enormous amount of money and they won’t get that back.

“Frank Lampard has left him out now numerous times so he’s not hidden the fact that he doesn’t quite like the way he’s performing so they’ve got a real challenge with the acquisition.

“I think Kepa’s said he’s fighting for his spot. We’ll see what happens but I know the manager doesn’t like him.”
