According to a report, Chelsea are ready to listen to offers starting from £50m for under-fire goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Frank Lampard is in search of a new goalkeeper and is already open to letting Kepa leave.

The 25-year-old has failed to deliver the promise that saw Chelsea sign him for a world-record goalkeeper fee in 2018.

Bought for £71m, the Blues are now ready to cut their losses on Kepa and could listen to offers starting from £50m. The Spaniard has been subject of many high-profile losses and the club are ready to move on from him.

The Daily Mail claim that Frank Lampard has sanctioned his sale provided they can get at an offer of at least £50m.

If a permanent deal cannot be reached with a potential suitor, a long-term loan deal will be considered to give Lampard time to weigh up his options.

The English boss is expected to put forward a list of potential replacements for Kepa, which includes the likes of Ajax’s Andre Onana and Burnley stopper Nick Pope.

The report concludes that Lampard is unconvinced by Kepa and is set to drop him again for his side’s FA Cup final against Arsenal on Saturday. Willy Caballero is now expected to feature in goal against the Gunners at Wembley.
