Juventus are considering making a move for Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga next summer.
When he joined the Blues from Athletic Bilbao in 2018 he became the most expensive goalkeeper in the world, but he has struggled to impress at Stamford Bridge, and is now number two behind Édouard Mendy, and has played just 181 minutes or first team football so far this season.
He has always been a player admired by the hierarchy of the Serie A club, and was once considered the favourite to replace Gianluigi Buffon, before former Arsenal keeper Wojciech Szczesny claimed the place instead.
However, with manager Max Allegri apparently harbouring doubts as to the Pole being his preferred long-term candidate between the sticks, they are ready to go back for Kepa again.
Now 27 years old, Kepa is under contract in West London until 2025, so Chelsea are under no pressure to sell him, and will be aware that they will not be able to recoup anything like the £71.8 million that they paid for him.
