Kepa could have played his last Chelsea game when Lampard “requests a new goalkeeper in the summer transfer window” – The Sun

    KEPA ARRIZABALAGA could have played his last game for Chelsea with Frank Lampard who would have requested a new goalkeeper this summer.

    Cope claims the Spaniard could be eliminated for the remainder of the season after being replaced by Willy Caballero for Saturday’s 2-2 draw in Leicester.

    And Kepa could also find himself moving to a new club while Lampard tries to sign a replacement in the next transfer window.

    Kepa has been targeted by fans and experts after some very complicated performances among the sticks.

    He conceded 32 goals in just 24 Premier League games before finding himself on the bench in Leicester.

    And veteran Caballero now looks set to remain Chelsea’s # 1 until the end of the campaign.

    Lampard has already been linked with a number of goalkeepers including Burnley’s Nick Pope and Crystal Palace’s Vicente Guaita.

    But Caballero is sure he can do enough to convince Lampard to stay with him in the meantime.

    The Argentine said to Chelsea’s official website: “The day before the game we trained and I was with the starting XI.

    “It was a difficult time for Kepa, for the team, and we respect each other very well. Even for the boss it was really difficult.

    “He just told me to be confident. It was a difficult decision, but I just had to take it and have fun. His message was very honest.

    “As a goalkeeper I have to switch on very quickly and be ready for this opportunity, because I have worked and trained hard for this.

    “I feel great because I played and we scored a point in a difficult stadium against a difficult team.

    “We will see what they want to do and I will continue to demonstrate that I can play and be in the starting XI for the next game.

    “But nobody is sure he will play at the next game. The boss’s message is to continue working hard in training.

    “I had the opportunity to play and have fun. I just have to do my job, be ready for the next game. “
