Kepa's Chelsea future in question: Is he staying?

There has been considerable debate over the future of Kepa Arrizabalaga.

The Spaniard arrived to Chelsea for a world-record fee for a goalkeeper back in the summer of 2018.

After a strong start, his form and confidence waned away and the Spanish custodian has dropped horribly from his standards in the last 18 months.

Chelsea has brought in a temporary replacement in Edouard Mendy but their boss Frank Lampard still believes that the former Athletic Bilbao man has a future at the club.

“I certainly won’t go to the point of [saying] he’s played his last game for Chelsea.

“I think it has been a difficult time for Kepa. That’s been well documented. I know it, he knows it, but we certainly shouldn’t jump to that conclusion.

“Also, [something] which I felt quite strongly about in the last week, is to understand that Kepa is a young man and an awful lot of the highlight or spotlight on him has become slightly unfair.

“I have to protect him because I know he is a good lad and playing with absolute professionalism and intent to do the best he can, as all the squad have done. That’s all I want to say about him now.”
