Kepa could be offered escape from Chelsea misery with Sevilla lining up loan transfer – but £150k-a-week wages an issue – The Sun

KEPA ARRIZABALAGA could be offered a get-out from his Chelsea misery with a loan move to Sevilla.

Chelsea’s keeper is again under pressure after letting in four goals at West Ham on Thursday night.

One was disallowed via a controversial VAR decision but the world’s most expensive goalkeeper is once more facing an uncertain future under boss Frank Lampard.

The £71.6million Spaniard may even be willing to accept a move to regain confidence or ultimately help seek a permanent transfer away from Stamford Bridge.

Kepa wants a top European club but is unlikely to interest Spanish big guns Real Madrid and Barcelona at present.

Sevilla are fourth in LaLiga and pushing for a Champions League place next season. But Kepa’s £150,000-a-week wages would be an issue as would the fee for a permanent deal because he is just two years into a mammoth six year contract.

Rivals Valencia would be another alternative but again the finance will be a problem.

Chelsea may have to adapt their normal loan policy in order to resolve the stand-off.

They normally ask loaning clubs to pay their players’ wages in full. But there are ways around it and one is for Chelsea to subsidise the salary but charge a loan fee to Seville instead.
