Valencia are rumored to be highly interested in acquiring Kepa Arizabalaga this summer. The young Spanish goalkeeper who broke the world record for most expensive goalkeeper when Chelsea triggered his release clause in 2018 has found life very difficult at the club since he joined.

A couple of costly mistakes and a consecutive run of bad form from the Spaniard has left Frank Lampard pissed at him and wanting another keeper who can fit into his style and plans for the club.

Valencia are highly keen on getting a 2 year loan deal for the keeper and are ready to activate his option to buy once the loan deal is over, but the player is not ready to leave Chelsea as he has fallen in love with the style of Lampard and his tactics.

Chelsea on the other hand are already on search for another shot stopper and their best option and choice at the moment is Ajax keeper, Andre Onana. Ajax have placed a €35 million price tag on the player and are ready to do business with Chelsea after the successful transaction of Hakim Ziyech.

Chelsea most likely will be on the loosing side of this deal because they won't be able to get the €70 million they forked out to Athletic Bilbao in 2018 anymore, and considering the young age of Kepa, it'll be advisable to give him more time to develop and get better at his game, so they don't repeat the same transfer mistakes they've made repeatedly over the years.
