"Lampard tells Chelsea he wants to sell him", McGarry says Coach wants to offload star player

With the transfer window getting more intense and the beginning of next season coming closer. Chelsea football club are preparing to have a better next season.

Chelsea already splashed big in bringing new star players like Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner and Ben Chiwell with three star players also ready to join the club in the coming days.

The most obvious of them is Kai Havertz from Bayern Leverkusen and also Thiago Silva and Malang Sarr also hoping to join the club on a free transfer from Paris Saint German and OGC Nice respectively.

With Frank Lampard reinforcing his squad, it should be noted that some players are surely going to leave the club, players like Zapacosta, Batstwayi, Emerson and Bakayoko.

A report also coming in is that Frank Lampard is also willing to offload the goal keeper, Kepa Arrizabalaga.

But according to Ian McGarry of the transfer window Podcast, Chelsea have marked a £72m price tag on the goal keeper and will refuse to sell unless they make their money back.

“With Kepa, it’s not such good news for Frank Lampard,” he said.

“He’s obviously a goalkeeper he doesn’t trust, he moved him out of the line-up last season.

“He wants to sell him, and has told the club he wants to sell.

“Chelsea’s position is that he’s for sale, and they’ve been looking at replacements and talking to clubs about replacements.

“The Ajax goalkeeper Andre Onana is an option, Kasper Schmeichel is another option, Lyon’s goalkeeper is another one who they would be interested in if they can sell Kepa.

“But, it’s a big if. I’m told Chelsea want €80million for Kepa, i.e they want the record transfer fee they paid for him back before they can buy a replacement.

“Essentially, they’re saying he stays, and Lampard is stuck with him.”
