Chelsea FC manager Frank Lampard wants to sell Kepa Arrizabalaga in the summer transfer window, according to a report in Spain.

Spanish media outlet Cope, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that Lampard is running out of patience with the Chelsea FC number one goalkeeper.

The same article states that the Blues boss has instructed the Chelsea FC board to offload Kepa and recruit a new goalkeeper in the summer.

According to the same story, the west London side are unlikely to secure anything near the £72m fee that they paid for Kepa in the 2018 summer transfer window.

The Blues made Kepa the world’s most expensive goalkeeper when Chelsea FC signed the Spain international from Athletic Bilbao in 2018.

Kepa’s transfer fee eclipsed Liverpool FC’s £67m outlay on Alisson Becker during the same summer transfer window.

The Blues shot-stopper caused controversy when he refused to be substituted during the League Cup final under Lampard’s predecessor Maurizio Sarri.

The Chelsea FC boss dropped Kepa for the west London side’s 2-2 draw with third-placed Leicester City at the King Power Stadium at the weekend.

Willy Caballero has started Chelsea FC’s last two games to lay claim to a regular starting spot.

The Blues will host Manchester United in their next Premier League game on Monday 17 February.
