Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has reportedly told the board that he wants goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga sold.
The 24-year-old has come under huge criticism this season following a series of poor performances, which saw him dropped from the Chelsea side for Willy Caballero.
His performances haven’t matched up to his price-tag, and Lampard has now made his mind up on the shot-stopper.
ESPN pundit Craig Burley has revealed that Lampard has expressed his thoughts to the Blues’ hierarchy over Kepa’s future at Stamford Bridge.
“My understanding is that Lampard told the board he wanted Kepa out, for whatever reason,” said Burley. “His performances, attitude, clash of personalities – whatever. That’s okay going to the board and saying that, but when you’ve paid the money they have for a goalkeeper, and it was a lot of money, they’ll be quite happy to sell him. They’re only going to sell and go down that road if they get a huge chunk of that money back. It could be a potential disaster for them.”
