Athletic Bilbao goalkeeper Kepa interesting Chelsea

Athletic Bilbao goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga is interesting Chelsea.

Marca says with Real Madrid determined to sign Thibaut Courtois, Chelsea are now looking to Kepa to replace the Belgian.

Courtois was absent from training on Monday without permission from the Blues, and it's clear that the goalkeeper is attempting to force through a move away from Stamford Bridge, a transfer that Los Blancos have been confident of since the World Cup.

New Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has only managed to bring one player to the club this summer. Kepa was a target of his to replace Pepe Reina during the Italian coach's time with Napoli and would represent a high-quality replacement for the outgoing Courtois.
