Does look like he'll be a top keeper. Thing is, if he does Barca will come after him eventually.

Cross that Bridge when we come to it.

Chelsea have over the past few weeks been linked with every conceivable goalkeeper target as the club prepare for life after Thibaut Courtois.

The Belgian international only has a year left on his contract and has made it clear he sees his future away from Stamford Bridge. Real Madrid is the planned destination, but first Chelsea need to get themselves a replacement in.

After claims earlier on Monday that Chelsea could trigger the €100m buyout clause of Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak, now there’s another La Liga target.

AS report Chelsea have chosen Kepa Arrizabalaga as Courtois’ replacement and are willing to pay his €80m butout clause. There would be no other way to convince Athletic Club Bilbao to sell the player, it just doesn’t work like that for the Basque club.

Kepa is said to see the potential move ‘with good eyes’ and the proposal put forward by Chelsea, which surely relates to personal terms, is said to be very attractive.

The 23 year old only renewed his contract when a move to Real Madrid failed in the January window.

He was set to join Real wasnt he last Jan? or last summer?

 

Seems a good GK though, id be quite pleased.  Get many yrs out of him, too

We all thought the same about Courtois, didn't we?

Worth noting most of Spain want him as the national team number 1 ahead of De Gea, not saying he is actually better but he must be good for his home country to have such view.

All over the Spanish press...we are willing to pay either Oblak or Kepa release clause...He is also keen the move...will take it with a pinch of salt anyway as But land is our England target...will be happy with either him or Rico

He reminds me of Hugo Lloris. Small for a keeper but very quick and agile.

If we go after him I'm sure the many Spanish players in our ranks would help him settle easily.
