Chelsea shot stopper KepaArrizabalaga is a target for Italian Serie A side Lazio with manager Maurizio Sarrikeen to reunite with the goalkeeper. Kepa played under Sarri during his time as the Chelsea manager. With Lazio interested in Kepa, Chelsea could beat West London giants Fulham to the signing of Thomas Strakosha who's available on a free transfer.
Lazio are in the transfer market for a new goalkeeper with the future of Pepe Reina and Thomas Strakosha in doubt.

The two Lazio goalkeepers might leave the Italian capital club this summer. Strakosha is available for interested teams as a free agent this summer amidst the interest from Premier League teams such as Fulham and Chelsea, while Reina could alsoleave the club this summer.

Italian side Lazio planned to make Marco Carnesecchi their new goalkeeper, but he could be out for many months after surgery. Italian shot stopper Carnesecchi is on loan at Cremonese from fellow Serie A team Atalanta. French media portal RMC Sport disclosed that Kepa could be a very good option for Lazio as they could sign the Spaniard on loan from Chelsea. Kepa is not ready to continue to play second fiddle to first choice goalkeeper Edouard Mendy at Chelsea.

Media reports revealed earlier this week that Albanian international goal minder Strakosha has an agreement to join Fulhamon a free transfer this summer. Despite those reports, Chelsea could hijack the deal to sign him from Fulham.
Lazio manager Sarri and Kepa have history from their time together at Chelsea after the Spanish international refused to come off during the 2019 Carabao Cup final clash with Manchester City. In the end, Kepa stayed on the pitch and City went on to win the Carabao Cup final on penalties.

Chelsea paid over €70m to sign Kepa from Spanish team Athletic Bilbao thus making him the most expensive goalkeeper ever. He played 15 times for Chelsea in all competitions this season.
