Decidedly, the divorce seems inevitable between Chelsea and Kepa Arrizabalaga. Still placed on the bench for the Cup final lost to Arsenal (2-1), the future of the Spanish goalkeeper should be written away from Stamford Bridge. In their XXL transfer window, the Blues are currently looking for a replacement to be able to evacuate him. And the name of Nick Pope comes back with insistence in the negotiations.
The Daily Star announcement would have made the Burnley goalkeeper his priority in this position. But to acquire the one who has managed 15 clean sheets in the Premier League, it will be necessary to pay the price: 55 million euros. With his 3 selections for the England team, the 28-year-old Englishman could be trying to give another turn to his career by joining a team from the top of the table, and with the ambition to win in the eyes of Gareth Southgate as the Three Lions’ number one goalie.
