According to a report from Fichajes, Juventus is considering a summer deal for Chelsea’s 27-year-old Spanish goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

In recent weeks, Chelsea has been connected to a number of goalkeepers. The upcoming months will be interesting to watch as they decide whether or not to sell the Spaniard. Kepa Arrizabalaga has been a crucial member of Graham Potter’s team, and Edouard Mendy has to make way for him in the goalkeeping lineup due to his superior distributing abilities.

Mendy has also been mentioned in connection with a transfer away from Chelsea. The seasoned goalkeeper needs to go in order to play regularly because he has dropped down the hierarchy. If Chelsea decided to sell both goalkeepers during the same transfer window, it would be rather unexpected.

In searching for a talented goalkeeper, Juventus has decided that the €80 million Chelsea star would be a great successor for Wojciech Szczesny. It will be intriguing to see if the Serie A team can afford a player like Kepa Arrizabalaga given their financial struggles.

When he signed with Chelsea, Kepa Arrizabalaga was paid an amount of €80 million that set a record for a goalie. And if Juventus makes a bid for him at the conclusion of the season, the Blues will be hoping to reclaim a sizable sum of money. The dominant teams in Serie A will also need to qualify for the Champions League.

Following a 15-point punishment, Juventus are currently outside of the Champions League. It is yet unclear how they will fare in the league standings, but they will need Champions League competition to draw quality players.

For his performances since joining Chelsea, the Spanish goalkeeper has received a lot of negative feedback. But, under the new management of Graham Potter, he has discovered a new lease on life, and during the past several months, his performances have been rather outstanding. If the 27-year-old is up for a fresh challenge at the end of the season, that remains to be seen.
