Lazio president Lotito targeting Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa

Lazio president Claudio Lotito is targeting Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Italian transfer expert Alfredo Pedulla reports Kepa could be offered a reunion with former boss Maurizio Sarri this summer.

The Spaniard featured sporadically under Thomas Tuchel, but could be offered an escape route in the coming months.

Sarri and Kepa famously clashed during the closing stages of the 2019 League Cup final - when the stopper refused to be replaced by Willy Caballero ahead of the penalty shoot-out.

But Kepa would appear to have made enough of a positive impression on Sarri that year for the new Lazio manager to want to work with him again.

Sarri was named Lazio coach yesterday.
