Chelsea identify Kepa replacement options

Chelsea have reportedly identified two goalkeeping targets to replace Kepa Arrizabalaga during this summer's transfer window.

Arrizabalaga has experienced a disappointing second season with the Blues and his future has been thrown into doubt after being dropped in place of Willy Caballero over the weekend.

It is the second time during the season that Frank Lampard has made the decision to drop him and it appears justified after his league-low save percentage of 51.

According to Evening Standard, the Spaniard may have played his last game for the Blues with Caballero expected to start in the FA Cup final against Arsenal this weekend.

The club are open to either temporary or permanent offers for his services and they have identified Atletico's Jan Oblak and Ajax's Andre Onana as potential replacements.

Oblak has been linked with the Blues in the past, but he won't come on the cheap with Atletico reluctant to sell him for anything less than his £109m release clause.

Meanwhile, Onana has been another of the club's long-term targets. He is expected to leave Ajax this summer and could be available for a relatively cheaper price of £30m.
