EPL: Chelsea take decision on selling Kepa after Bayern Munich approach
According to Sport1, Chelsea is reportedly open to the idea of allowing their goalkeeper, Kepa Arrizabalaga, to join Bayern Munich before the summer transfer window closes. This development follows discussions between Bayern Munich and Chelsea regarding a potential deal for Kepa.
Bayern Munich has been actively seeking a new first-choice goalkeeper throughout the summer, especially with the departure of Yann Sommer to Inter and the extended absence of Manuel Neuer due to a leg injury he sustained in December of the previous year.
The Bundesliga champions had initially shown interest in signing David Raya, the goalkeeper from Brentford, but it seems that Raya is now on the verge of joining Arsenal, leading Bayern Munich to explore other options.
A significant factor in this potential move is the connection between Kepa and Bayern Munich’s manager, Thomas Tuchel, who coached the Spanish goalkeeper during his time at Chelsea. Tuchel’s desire to reunite with Kepa at Bayern Munich has led him to personally recommend the player to the club’s board, suggesting that Kepa could become part of Bayern Munich’s goalkeeping plans for the upcoming season.
