Report: Chelsea identified £15m Kepa Arrizabalaga replacement

Chelsea's Kepa Arrizabalaga during the Premier League match between Chelsea FC and Everton FC at Stamford Bridge on March 8, 2020 in London, United Kingdom.

Kepa Arrizabalaga does not look like the £71 million goalkeeper following a string of mediocre performances and his Chelsea future has come under doubt. 

According to Team Talk, Chelsea are looking at alternatives already and the blues are ready to make a move for Roman Burki, who could be available in a cut-price deal. 

The Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper could be available for just £15 million, as he is entering into the last year of his contract with the Germans.

The Switzerland international has been with Dortmund since 2015 and he has spent a vast majority of his professional career in German football. He is a player of incredible experience after playing in more than 200 Bundesliga matches since joining Dortmund. 

The 29-year-old has managed to register 10 clean sheets so far in the league this season and this is quite a commendable achievement considering Dortmund’s away blues.

After a long time in German football, Burki is reportedly considering a move to the Premier League. Chelsea are monitoring the situation that could develop rather well. 

The club recently extended the contract of Willy Caballero by another year in a move that once again shows that Lampard’s confidence in Kepa is not so great. Despite being a number two, Caballero has had a decent run in the first team this season.
