Juventus targeting Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa

According to reports, Juventus are targeting a move for Chelsea backup goalkeeper Kepa next summer.

Kepa still has a contract until 2025 with Chelsea. But Kepa has only featured three times for Chelsea this season. Since the arrival of Edouard Mendy last season, Kepa has dropped down the pecking order and now serves as the backup goalkeeper for Chelsea.

Chelsea for a world-record fee for a goalkeeper £72million to bring Kepa to the club from Athletic Bilbao in August 2018. Kepa has made 112 appearances for Chelsea in all competitions since his move. And conceding 121 goals and keeping 41 clean sheets in the process.

On the other hand, Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has run out of patience with Juventus goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny. Wojciech Szczesny has been really inconsistent with his performance this season. Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri views Kepa as the perfect replacement for Szczesny as the new number 1.

It is also being reported Massimiliano Allegri myself is pushing for Kepa to leave Chelsea and join Juventus next summer. Kepa could also move next summer in search of some regular playtime. And Juventus can offer that to Kepa.

Juventus were also scouting the Spanish goalkeeper during his time at Athletic Bilbao, even before his move to Chelsea in 2018. Juventus were also interested in signing Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma after the expiration of his contract at AC Milan. But Gianluigi Donnarumma chose to join PSG instead of Juventus.

Kepa could prove to be a cheap transfer that could work perfectly for all parties involved. Chelsea would get some return for their massive £72million investment. And Kepa can emerge as the number 1 for Juventus and get his much-desired playtime.

There are also rumours going around that Chelsae can offer Kepa and cash for Juventus star Paulo Dybala. Thomas Tuchel has grown frustrated with the performances of his attacking duo Hakim Ziyech and Kai Havertz. And is looking for new attacking options.
