Kepa to leave Chelsea?

Spanish goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga is reportedly willing to accept a pay-cut in order to secure a fresh challenge away from Chelsea this summer.

The 25-year-old has endured a difficult second season for the Blues and he was dropped recently after the 5-3 league defeat at Liverpool.

According to The Sun, Kepa is prepared to head for the exit door this summer and is willing to accept a drop on his £150,000-a-week wages.

It is unclear whether any club is interested in signing him permanently, but Valencia have been regularly linked with his services.

The west London side are keen on signing a high-profile replacement for Kepa and Atletico Madrid's Jan Oblak is one of the names on their radar.

The Slovenian could be available for his £109m release clause and that remains a potential stumbling block towards a summer deal.

Elsewhere, Ajax's Andre Onana has also been associated with a possible switch to Stamford Bridge. He is reportedly valued at just £35m.
