Chelsea fans want Kepa to replace Thibaut Courtois this summer

Chelsea fans want Kepa to replace Thibaut Courtois this summer

It’s been a quiet few weeks for Chelsea, relatively speaking, but the summer transfer window looks set to end with a bang. The Blues have only signed Jorginho and Rob Green this summer, but it now seems likely that we could see incomings and outgoings at Stamford Bridge over the coming few days.

According to Goal, Chelsea may have identified their preferred replacement for Thibaut Courtois, who looks to be heading to Real Madrid, and it seems Chelsea fans have too.

Goal report that Athletic Bilbao goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga is the latest man to end up on Chelsea’s shortlist, and though he’d be an expensive option, the club are apparently able to pay the required fee – said to be around £71 million.

A fantastic young goalkeeper, the 23-year-old has impressed in Spain, and significantly, he is very strong on the ball – which would suit Sarri’s style well. Not to mention, given his age, the goalkeeper would be expected to continue to improve over coming years.

Some Chelsea fans have been discussing the news over the last day or so, and it’s fair to say that they’re very excited about the prospect of him signing. Indeed, they think he’d be a brilliant signing, and they’re touting him as superior to Alison. Alisson, of course, moved to Liverpool earlier this summer, and he shares a number of traits with Kepa – notably his quality with the ball at his feet.

Take a look at what Chelsea fans have had to say below…
