Kepa Arrizabalaga could finally be on his way out of the exit door at Stamford Bridge interest coming from Napoli for the Spanish goalkeeper. Maurizio Sarri signed Kepa for a world-record £72m back in August 2018 when he was in charge at the Blues.
Lazio boss Sarri is reportedly eyeing an unlikely reunion with Chelsea flop Kepa this month.
Despite becoming the world’s most expensive goalkeeper of all-time, Spainish stopper will not look back particularly fondly on his time at Stamford Bridge.
Kepa was Sarri’s no. 1 for the 2018/19 season, as well as for Frank Lampard’s first term in charge.
But a string of errors and poor performances saw him replaced by new signing Edouard Mendy.

The Senegal international has proved to be one of the best keepers on the planet, firmly keeping Kepa out of contention.
And now he looks to be heading out of the exit door in west London.
According to Italian outlet Il Messaggero, Kepa could be heading to Lazio on loan for the rest of the season.
The main roadblock in a potential deal is Kepa’s reported £155,000-per-week salary, so Chelsea may have to offer some kind of contribution.
Sarri’s eagerness to reunite with Kepa may come as a surprise to many after his infamous bust-up with the Italian during the 2018/19 Carabao Cup final.
The goalkeeper refused to substituted by his manager with the match heading towards a penalty shootout, leaving Sarri fuming on the touchline.
Sarri is also keen to bring Everton midfielder Allan back to the Stadio Olimpico, the report continues.
The Brazilian has been a regular feature for Rafa Benitez this term, but results at Goodison Park have continued to underwhelm.
Like Kepa though, his £70,000-per-week wages are currently preventing a possible return to Rome for Allan.
