BREAKING: 20m Rated Player Ready For Stamford Bridge Swap

Kepa Arrizabalaga is on the radar of Athletic Bilbao, who could look for a new shot-stopper if Unai Simon departs. La Liga giants’ strict transfer policy means there are only a few options for them to consider in the market, with Chelsea shot-stopper one of those.

Spain international looks to have gotten back his regular place in this Chelsea side this campaign following the appointment of Graham Potter. The ex-Brighton manager reinstated Kepa in place of Mendy, and the ex-Athletic Bilbao goalkeeper has proven himself.

Arrizabalaga moved to the London club after Chelsea paid a world-record transfer fee for a shot-stopper back in 2019. The 28-year-old goalkeeper has had a topsy-turvy ride since then. But as things were returning to normal at the club, he suffered another injury right before the World Cup break.

The Spaniard could start matches once the PL campaign resumes, but his long-term future at the club is under considerable doubt. The Blues are open to a sale if they can find suitable replacements in the market. Even Mendy’s future is also in doubt, which points to Chelsea thinking about refreshing the position altogether.

Former employers Athletic Bilbao are reportedly interested in re-signing the Spanish goalkeeper if there is a chance. Much will depend on whether Unai Simon stays at the Club. The Spaniard could become a key target for many clubs following his displays at the World Cup with La Roja.
