Chelsea are prepared to part ways with goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga in the next transfer window, The Guardian reports.

The Spaniard has been the back-up goalkeeper for the Blues since the arrival of Edouard Mendy from Rennes in 2020.

In recent weeks, Kepa has impressed between the sticks in Mendy’s absence, but he is unlikely to keep his place for long.

Kepa has a contract until June 2026, but the Blues are willing to sanction his sale during the summer transfer window.

The west London giants spent a hefty £72m for the Spaniard in 2018, and are hopeful of recouping some of the funds.

Lazio have been heavily linked with his services in recent months. Ex-Blues boss Maurizio Sarri is keen on a reunion.

It has been reported that the 27-year-old would also welcome the idea of leaving as he looks to revive his club career.

The former Athletic Bilbao graduate may need to accept a pay-cut on his £155,000-a-week wages to join a new club.
