Chelsea fans react as Lazio eye Kepa Arrizabalaga deal

Former Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri is set to return to Stamford Bridge in an attempt to take Kepa Arrizabalaga on loan.

According to La Repubblica, via The Sun, Lazio are very interested in signing the Spanish goalkeeper.

It is thought that they will pay half of his £150,000-a-week wage and want him to join for the 2021/22 campaign.

Kepa has fallen down the pecking order behind Edouard Mendy and Chelsea are weighing up whether or not to let him leave.

The custodian cost the Blues a whopping £71 million but hasn’t really made the grade at Stamford Bridge.

He has made 109 appearances, keeping 39 clean sheets. Ultimately though his game has been riddled with errors and inconsistencies.

It seems highly likely that he will leave Chelsea this summer and linking up with Sarri could be ideal.

Kepa arrived at Chelsea from Athletic Bilbao and perhaps some other clubs will emerge as interested parties.

Chelsea fans urge club to sell Kepa

It seems as though the Blues fan base are unanimous in their thoughts over the 26-year-old goalkeeper.

They are keen to see him sold and think a fresh start would be good for the stopper.

He’s not quite proved good enough to cope with the demands of the Premier League and Lazio would represent an attractive proposition.

Following links with a move, fans have taken to Twitter. They are adamant that the right move is to sell him this summer.

Here is what the Blues faithful have been saying about a potential departure for Kepa.
