Sevilla rival Valencia for Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa

Sevilla are interested in Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

The Sun says Kepa could be offered a get-out from his Chelsea misery with a loan move to Sevilla.

Chelsea's keeper is again under pressure after letting in four goals at West Ham on Wednesday night. One was disallowed via a controversial VAR decision but the world's most expensive goalkeeper is once more facing an uncertain future under boss Frank Lampard.

Kepa wants a top European club but is unlikely to interest Spanish big guns Real Madrid and Barcelona at present.

Sevilla are fourth in LaLiga and pushing for a Champions League place next season.

But Kepa's £150,000-a-week wages would be an issue as would the fee for a permanent deal because he is just two years into a mammoth six year contract.

Rivals Valencia would be another alternative but again the finance will be a problem.
