Chelsea chief Petr Cech working on three potential Kepa Arrizabalaga replacements


Frank Lampard has reportedly asked Petr Cech to help him and Marina Granovskaia complete the signing of a new goalkeeper this summer. The Blues boss is willing to call on the services of his former team-mate and now technical and performance advisor to help him find a new No 1.

Lampard has grown tired of Kepa Arrizabalaga’s inconsistency and the Spaniard has lost several points for Chelsea this season.

The 3-2 defeat to West Ham appeared to be the final straw for Lampard, who is now willing to show his ruthless streak as boss.

According to The Telegraph, he will call on Cech as a second opinion in the search for a new goalkeeper.

The club will have to find a buyer for Kepa though and there is already loan interest from Valencia and Sevilla.

Express Sport looks through the three potential replacements on Chelsea’s radar.

Andre Onana

Chelsea know all about Onana’s quality having played against him twice in this season’s Champions League group stages.

As a Barcelona academy graduate, the Cameroon international is also comfortable with his feet and could prove a real asset for Frank Lampard.

Chelsea have a good relationship with Ajax on the back of the deal for Hakim Ziyech which was wrapped up earlier in the year.

The 24-year-old would cost around £26.9million.

Dean Henderson

Henderson has already opened the door on leaving Manchester United if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer cannot give him a crack as No 1.

With David de Gea set to remain first choice, Chelsea are looking to strike.

Henderson is of course on loan at Sheffield United until the end of the season but when he returns to Old Trafford he will seek clarity.

Chelsea are prepared to make their move should they find a suitor for Kepa.
