According to TribalFootball, Italian club Lazio has emerged as a serious option for Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

The Spanish goalkeeper has dropped down the pecking order at Chelsea and is now backup to Edouard Mendy.

Chelsea paid Athletic Club a world record fee to sign Kepa in the summer of 2018 but a series of high profile errors have seen him lose his place to Mendy.

Lazio are reportedly preparing a summer move for Kepa and a loan deal appears the most likely option as the Italian side can’t afford to pay close to the record fee Chelsea paid for Kepa.
