Lampard targets two as Kepa faces nine-game Chelsea audition


Kepa Arrizabalaga reportedly has nine games to prove his worth to Chelsea boss Frank Lampard.

The Spain international was dropped midway through the season after a number of costly mistakes, with Willy Caballero filling in.

Kepa showed an upturn in form on his return to the team before the coronavirus crisis, but The Telegraph claim he has nine games to save his Chelsea career.

The report mentions Burnley keeper Nick Pope and Ajax stopper Andre Onana as realistic targets Chelsea could pursue as his replacement.

The £27million-rated Cameroonian is also on Paris Saint-Germain’s radar after particularly fine performances in the Champions League for the Dutch giants.



Pope currently leads the Premier League in terms of clean sheets, with 11, and has firmly established himself as one of the most consistent performers in the division.

Kepa become the most expensive goalkeeper in history after completing a £72million move from Atletico Madrid in 2018.

These next nine games could be the most important of his career so far.
