Chelsea are planning to flog goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga after the capture of Edouard Mendy.

According to reports, Chelsea are keen on selling the Spanish goalkeeper on loan to make way for the Senegal international Mendy.

Frank Lampard looks to have lost his patience with Kepa, who has been put under scrutiny due to poor form.

The Spanish goalkeeper suffered a decline last season, producing a string of horrendous performances. Kepa also looks no different this term as he sported another error-prone display against Liverpool in the 2-0 defeat.

Kepa has been linked with an exit when Lampard went with Willy Caballero for many games last season. Valencia were heavily linked with a loan move for the former Athletic Club goalkeeper.

Mendy, 28, has been signed on a five-year deal and he is expected to become Chelsea’s new No.1. Furthermore, the Senegalese star is coming after an excellent season in Ligue 1 at Rennes.

The Blues signed Kepa for a world-record fee, but in hindsight, they could be resenting the transfer for what he has done in recent times.

Lampard, who earlier showed his support for Kepa, stated that the Spaniard’s mistake against Liverpool was costly.

It remains to be seen which of the clubs would come forward to take the 25-year-old on loan, while Sevilla and Valencia are said to be the potential destinations.

Meanwhile, Kepa can regain his confidence elsewhere and return to Stamford Bridge to fight for his spot.
