Chelsea Star Agrees Personal Terms To Leave Stamford Bridge

The 23-year-old goalie joined the Blues from Athletic Bilbao for £71m during the summer window but Carragher — who is now a pundit — believes the West London club might regret spending a huge price on such young goalkeeper.

He said Kepa is a very young goalkeeper who might not cope with the physical-demanding nature of the League on the long run.

He said playing twice in a week ( Sunday and Thursday) might be too challenging for the young goalkeeper.

“But you think of them playing Thursday-Sunday and the goalkeeper is still young.” he admitted

He also speaks on Chelsea’s decision to let go of Thibaut Courtois, who joined Real Madrid for just £32m.

According to him, the Blues have lost one of the best goalkeepers in the world.

“He may go on to be one of the world’s best, but it’s not Courtois. They have lost one of the world’s best,” he said.

While speaking on Monday Night Football on Sky Sports, Carragher admits that Kepa is a great goalie who has great potentials to become one of the best goalies in the world but that might take much time

ethan ampadu

Chelsea midfielder Ethan Ampadu has signed for German Bundesliga side RB Leipzig on loan for the new season.

His loan deal to RB Leipzig was confirmed earlier on Monday.

The 18-year-old Chelsea player has been handed the number 26 jersey at the German club.

Ethan Ampadu was promoted to the first team at Chelsea in 2016 and he has made 12 appearances in all competitions since then.

The young Welsh international signed a new contract at Chelsea in September 2018.

While Maurizio Sarri was the Chelsea manager last season, he made just three appearances in all competitions for the west Londoners.

He would be hoping to continue his football education in Germany with RB Leipzig who will play in the Champions League.

RB Leipzig returned to the Champions League after they finished third on the German Bundesliga table last season behind Borussia Dortmund and champions Bayern Munich.

It would be their second Champions League campaign in three seasons.

In addition, RB Leipzig also reached the German Cup final before they were thrashed 3-0 by eventual winners Bayern Munich.

On Ethan Ampadu, new Chelsea manager Frank Lampard revealed that he tried to sign him on loan while he was the Derby County manager during the last campaign.

Lampard stressed the need for Ampadu to go out on loan.

Nabil Fekir

Lyon midfielder Nabil Fekir will undergo his Real Betis medical ahead of his €20m move.

The news of his medical was confirmed by popular media portal Goal.

Nabil Fekir has just one year left on his current deal at Lyon and the French Ligue 1 giants were almost handicapped in letting him leave this summer rather than for free next summer.

The French midfielder is expected to be the direct replacement for Giovanni Lo Celso at Real Betis.

Lo Celso is closing in on a move to the Premier League with Tottenham Hotspur and Nabil Fekir will replace him at the club.

The Argentine international was one of the best midfielders in the Spanish La Liga last season.

He scored 15 goals for Real Betis during the last campaign.

Nabil Fekir was previously a target for reigning European champions Liverpool.

As a matter of fact, he came close to joining Liverpool last summer after the Reds agreed on a £50m deal for him.

He had done his Liverpool medical before the Reds pulled the plug on the deal due to concerns over his knee.

The French World Cup winner was linked with Liverpool again this summer but the Reds debunked those transfer rumours.

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has ruled out a return to fellow Premier League club Everton for Kurt Zouma.

In his latest interview monitored by the Daily Mail, Frank Lampard revealed that he wants to keep the player at the club.

French defender Zouma has returned to Chelsea this summer after spending last season on loan at Merseyside giants Everton.

He joined Everton on a season-long loan deal on the deadline day of last summer’s transfer window.

Kurt Zouma impressed a great deal at Everton and the Toffees were interested in a permanent deal for him.

Everton manager Marco Silva had previously said that he wants to keep the defender at Goodison Park but it seems like the Portuguese tactician won’t get his wish.

Frank Lampard has shown the willingness to give Chelsea loanees from last season a chance in his squad as he settles down to his new job as the Blues manager.

He signed a three-year deal at Chelsea until the end of the 2021/22 season.

Chelsea and Lampard are somewhat handicapped in the current transfer window due to the ban slammed on them by world football’s governing body FIFA.

The Blues have taken their case to the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS).
