Petr Cech Pursuing New Target List To Replace Kepa At Chelsea

Petr Cech is actively looking for replacements for Kepa Arrizibalaga at Chelsea.

Fresh reports from The Telegraph claim that Frank Lampard is keen on signing a new goalkeeper even if Chelsea fail to sell Kepa.

The Blues have set up a scouting team of Cech and former goalkeeper coach, Christophe Lollichon to find their next custodian. Cech is already tasked with flying out to Germany to secure a deal for Kai Havertz. As soon as that is wrapped up, Lampard will focus his efforts on a new number one.

Kepa watched on from the benches as a veteran Willy Cabellero fended against Manchester United in the FA Cup semi-final. This is not the first time the Spaniard has been dropped from a key fixture following inconsistent performances. Lampard has lost faith in the 25-year-old who still stands as the world’s most expensive keeper at £71.2 million.

Lampard is already ramping up the Chelsea attack but he will soon need to address that faltering backline. Other than Kepa, Chelsea are devoid of a strong presence at the back who will deliver on a regular basis. Antonio Rudiger and Cesar Azpilicueta cannot be asked to hold down the fort on their own every game.
