Juventus are interested in signing Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga this summer.
The Italian club want to freshen up their squad by bringing in younger players to try and make them in the running for all the major titles again and are looking for somebody to compete with current number one Wojciech Szczesny, who has undisputed ownership of the jersey since Gianluigi Buffon left the club.
Kepa is clearly not going to dislodge Édouard Mendy at Stamford Bridge under Thomas Tuchel, and until the current sanctions placed the whole club in limbo, had been told he could leave if the right offer came along.
The Spaniard has been on the Serie A side’s radar for some time, but they could face competition from Italian rivals Lazio, now managed by Maurizio Sarri, who is keen for a reunion with Kepa, even though the pair did not always see eye to eye during their time at Chelsea together.
