Chelsea are unlikely to sanction the sale of goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga when the transfer window reopens at the end of the campaign.

The 25-year-old was dropped from the starting XI by Frank Lampard earlier in the year but he was able to reclaim his spot before the coronavirus shutdown.

According to The Mail, the Blues have looked to drum up interest through intermediaries over the past few weeks but their attempt has been unsuccessful.

It is added that the club are now prepared to keep hold of his services for the 2020/21 season at the least, given they don't want to make a loss due to the financial impact of the coronavirus outbreak.

The Blues had initially planned a busy summer with a number of high-profile signings targeted but they may reconsider their plans amid the ongoing crisis around the world.

The west Londoners have recently been linked with a move for defender Gabriel from Lille. Everton are, however, said to be in advanced negotiations to land the centre-back.
