According to journalist Dean Jones, there are genuine concerns among Chelsea staff regarding Kepa Arrizabalaga. Some individuals within the club reportedly question whether the 28-year-old goalkeeper should retain his starting position for the upcoming season.

Despite being the starter for most of the previous campaign. Many have assumed that Chelsea would be seeking to upgrade Kepa this summer.

Having displaced Edouard Mendy as the club’s starter, Kepa led to the Senegalese international’s departure from Chelsea. Mendy accepted a lucrative offer from Saudi Arabia. Following the footsteps of Kalidou Koulibaly and N’golo Kante, who had already made the move there. This sale strengthened the belief that Chelsea would pursue the signing of a first-team goalkeeper during the summer. With several names being linked to the club.

Chelsea and their tactics

According to Jones, there are in renew murmurs of interest in AC Milan’s Mike Maignan. Indicating that Chelsea staff are still not convincing enough about starting the season with Kepa in goal. He anticipates that the goalkeeper situation at the club will become more interesting and urgent in the coming days.

The initial days of Pochettino’s tenure will reveal how Kepa Arrizabalaga performs, but there remains a considerable number of individuals at Cobham who are not entirely convinced that he is the long-term first-choice goalkeeper under the new manager.

“The talks surrounding Mike Maignan have resurfaced, and there have been discussions regarding the possibility of bringing him in, so it’s something to keep an eye on.”

Inter Milan are reportedly in pursuit of Balogun after their attempts to re-acquire Romelu Lukaku from Chelsea have hit a snag. The Italian giants view Balogun as a long-term investment. Their recent Champions League journey, along with the potential departure of Lukaku, has created an opportunity for the young striker.

Supporters generally share the sentiment that they do not consider Kepa to possess the necessary abilities to be the number one goalkeeper, despite his comeback to the team last season.
