The 27-year-old Spanish goalkeeper, Kepa Arrizabalaga, who had come under the radar for a lot of undesirable errors, has been making up for all his mistakes and is in the form of his life now.
The world’s most expensive goalkeeper, who was signed for a record £71million in the 2018 summer, has been the backup choice ever since Edouard Mendy arrive at the club
Despite putting up unbelievable performances of late, whenever he has got a chance, Kepa is still fighting to save his Chelsea career as Mendy is also at his prime and not at all slowing down.
Thomas Tuchel is having a welcome dilemma with two in-form Goalkeepers in his side, and he is expected to choose Mendy over Kepa for Saturday’s CWC final against Palmeiras.
Kepa is widely praised for his work ethic and commitment, both by Chelsea staff and worldwide, and this is likely to make foreign clubs re-interested in signing the Spaniard.
Chelsea have always respected Kepa and are not expected to stay in the way of Kepa, should a suitable offer come in for him, provided he doesn’t want to be a No.2 anymore.
It is undeniably true that Kepa is too good to be just a backup keeper and we’ll be happy if he gets his deserved gametime anywhere else.
