Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga is unlikely to leave Stamford Bridge this summer, according to a report.

Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga is reportedly unlikely to leave Stamford Bridge this summer despite enduring a difficult 2019-20 campaign in London.

The 25-year-old has spent time out of the first XI in recent months, having largely struggled to make his mark since joining the Blues from Athletic Bilbao in 2018.

A recent report claimed that intermediaries had attempted to drum up interest in the Spain international ahead of this summer's transfer window, but the exercise did not prove to be a success.

As a result, Frank Lampard's side are preparing to keep hold of the stopper for at least the 2020-21 campaign, according to the Daily Mail.

The report claims that the capital giants are not prepared to sell Kepa on the cheap this summer, and there is unlikely to be much interest due to the financial impact of the coronavirus outbreak.

Experienced Argentine Willy Caballero has started four of Chelsea's last five Premier League matches but will be out of contract at the end of June.
