Report: Spain Goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga Speaks out About His Chelsea Future

Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga has spoken out about his future at the club amid rumours that the Spain international will depart the club this summer.

Since signing, the Spaniard has come under criticism and fallen down the pecking order in terms of the goalkeeping ranks, following the arrival of Senegalese goalkeeper Edouard Mendy. 

Following the signing of Mendy, Kepa has been limited to game time and primarily been played in the cup competitions. 

Kepa made 15 apperances last season and made headlines when he came off the bench for the penalty shoot-out in the Carabao Cup final against Liverpool where he missed the decisive penalty in the shoot-out to deny Chelsea victory.
