Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga is one of the newest faces in England but his performance has made it that his name has been called on several occasions which is already sounding like an old one in the Premier League.
The Spanish keeper cannot but speak of his new life at the West London club and the Premier League in general.
Kepa joined the Stamford Bridge club for the fee of about £72 million from Athletic Bilbao, making him one of the most expensive goalkeepers in the league.
He has contributed to why Chelsea have been unbeaten this season having kept 6 clean sheets in 10 games with fantastic saves.
According to him, the English league is very much different to the Spanish La Liga in style and pattern and that makes life look different to him.
The goalie has expressed delight with progress in the league as well as how far he has adapted to what is needed to be a good keeper in England.
He already wishes to stay a longer year in the Premier League as he grows in confidence and also knowledge of the game.
Kepa’s challenge in England continues after the international break when his side host Manchester United at the Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea star €10m away from competing Serie A transfer
After making their interest known in securing the signature of West London outfit Chelsea star, Ola Aina, Italian Serie A outfit Torino are already preparing a bid ahead of the summer transfer window.
It has been confirmed by Torino president Urbano Cairo that the West London outfit will receive a bid of about €10 million to seal a permanent deal for Ola Aina.
The Nigerian international enjoyed an impressive loan spell with the Italian Serie A outfit and has been confirmed that he will remain with the club on a permanent deal.
Ola Aina has been a Chelsea player for a number of years but he has failed to break into the first team and it is obvious that he will not be in manager Maurizio Sarri team for the coming season.
Having had a number of loan spells, the Super Eagles player now has a permanent deal with the Italian Serie A where he is expected to enjoy first team football and regular playing time.
However, the Nigerian international has a buyback clause and that will be activated by the Italian Serie A club as the summer transfer window is opened.
Ola Aina has shown great prospect as a player but that has never been trusted at the Stamford Bridge.
Eden Hazard: Latest developments at PSG could turn Chelsea’s fate around
West London outfit could still stand a chance to keep Belgium international Eden Hazard at the club beyond this season.
The Blues team are almost giving up on keeping the Belgium international at the club after he has insisted on leaving while he has refused to sign a new deal with the club.
The Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid is believed to be his destination because of his wish to work under his football Idol Zinedine Zidane.
However, there could be a development that will force the Spanish La Liga outfit to drop their interest in the signature of the Chelsea player.
This is after it was hinted by French Ligue 1 outfit PSG boss Thomas Tuchel that the team could part ways with their star players Neymar and Kylian Mbappe as they are both been linked to Real Madrid.
This therefore, means that a capture of the two PSG players could force Real Madrid to step down their interest in Eden Hazard as they are currently finding it difficult to agree on a deal with the Blues team.
Chelsea are reportedly not ready to accept less than the 100 million euros asking price which Real Madrid have refused.
Chelsea transfer target admits EPL dream
West London outfit Chelsea have received a boost in their choice of German Bundesliga outfit Eintracht Frankfurt star Luka Jovic as a summer transfer target.
Luka Jovic has been in form for the German Bundesliga outfit this season, having scored a total of 25 goals this season, with two of the goals coming against the West London outfit in the semi-final of the Europa League.
The quality of Luka Jovic was evident to the Blues team when they faced his side in the Europa League game. He is a strong attacker who has an eye for goals.

Luka Jovic has been on the wish list of the Blues team for a very long time and a deal is suspected to go down as soon as possible, after claiming that he would like to have another experience in other European leagues.
However, Chelsea will have the opportunity to land their start target if the transfer ban on the club would be lifted.
Elseid Hysaj awaits Sarri decision to determine transfer
Latest reports have claimed that the Italian Serie A outfit Napoli star Elseid Hysaj seeks to leave Naples in this summer transfer window with his bags already packed but he has got limited options.
Italian Serie A outfit Inter Milan were earlier interested in the signature of the star player but their interest seems to have cooled off and a deal stalled which makes the West London outfit Chelsea as the only possible destination for him.
However, Elseid Hysaj’s possible move to the West London outfit Chelsea largely depends on the future of manager Maurizio Sarri at Stamford Bridge, knowing that a deal might not be possible if the Italian boss is sacked.
- Why Sarri’s sack is not negotiable
- Deal on!!! Sarri gets another option ahead of Chelsea sack

There have been speculations that the former Napoli boss would be sacked by the Blues’ owner if he fails to deliver the Europa League finals title against Arsenal later in the week.
Elseid Hysaj has got a good relationship with the Blues boss as they had worked together in the past which is a basis for their wish to work together again.
However, Elseid Hysaj has ‘only Sarri left’ as he wants out from Serie A but that will not happen if the Blues boss is sacked.
Chelsea could be having the last of Eden Hazard
It is observed that the West London outfit Chelsea could be having a feel of their star player and Belgium international Eden Hazard for the last time when the club trade tackles with their London rivals Arsenal in the Europa League finals later in the week.
Eden Hazard has already made clear his decision to leave Stamford Bridge as soon as the season is over especially as he has refused to sign a new deal with the Blues team.
The West London outfit have done all in their power to convince the star player to remain at the club but that has not yielded any results with claims that he has already agreed on personal terms with Real Madrid while talks between the two clubs would be finalized after the Europa League finals.

- No Deal!!! Liverpool player going nowhere, says he is still at Anfield
- Deal ON!!! Liverpool still chasing Ajax star
Eden Hazard remains the heartbeat of the Blues team and that has been admitted by manager Maurizio Sarri who claims that it would be difficult to have him replaced at the club.
However, it could be the last but memorable one for the Blues fans should the Belgium international put up another class display that would be difficult for Arsenal team to contain.
Has Chelsea gotten a replacement for Sarri, surprise name already mentioned
The speculations surrounding the future of West London outfit Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri is still unending as a new name has surfaced to take over his job.
It has been claimed that Chelsea owner Abramovich is considering showing Maurizio Sarri the way out of the club after a mixed season as well as his worrying relationship with the club fans.
This has made the Blues boss linked with a number of offers, especially in his country home. AS Roma and Juventus are all keen to hand him an escape route.
However, the latest report claims that former Real Madrid boss Julen Lopetegui is interested in having the job of the Chelsea manager after his short spell at the Spanish La Liga outfit.
Awaiting the result of the Europa League, which could determine Maurizio Sarri’s future, Julen Lopetegui is already on the standby to return to the dugout but with English Premier League sides.
However, former Chelsea star Frank Lampard is reported to be a candidate for the job but it is suggested that he is being reserved for the future as the Blues team plan to make a former player the manager of the club in the coming years.
Another exit looms for Chelsea star
Emerging reports have claimed that the West London outfit Chelsea are set to part ways with their star midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko for another season on a loan deal.
Tiemoue Bakayoko only returned from a loan spell at the Italian Serie A outfit AC Milan where he eventually became a regular and was handed 41 appearances by manager Gennaro Gattuso.
Now it is reported that Tiemoue Bakayoko would be sent on another loan spell after the club received an approach from the Inter Milan but the terms of the contract will include an option of a buy if he impresses them.
The Sun reports that Inter Milan could finally land Tiemoue Bakayoko at San Siro on a permanent deal with a fee of £35 million in view.
It is not clear if Tiemoue Bakayoko would be asked to return back to the Stamford Bridge as he is not in the plans of Italian manager Maurizio Sarri but that could change if the former Napoli boss is sacked.
Meanwhile, Chelsea have got a number of options in the middle including N’Golo Kante, Jorginho, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Ross Barkley.
It is claimed that the former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte made the request for the star player after working together at Stamford Bridge in the 2017-18 season.
Maurizio Sarri’s Juve move “done”
Emerging reports in the Italian media have claimed that the West London outfit Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has already agreed on a deal to join the Italian Serie A champions Juventus.
Juventus have parted ways with their manager who announced his decision to quit after lifting the Serie A title but failing to deliver expected success in the Champions League.
This has made the Serie A outfit keen on a new manager and have identified the Chelsea boss as a replacement, having seen what he did with his former club, Napoli in the 2017/2018 season before calling it quit for the Stamford Bridge.
Although, the report of a move by the Italian boss has been dismissed in the past, stressing that he still has a running contract with the Blues team and he is focused on getting his team to play better.
But the report by SNAI journalist Tancredi Palmeri has claimed that a contract worth £7 million per year has been secretly agreed upon between Juventus and former Napoli boss.
However, it is suggested that Maurizio Sarri will simply call it quit as soon as he fails to deliver the Europa League against Arsenal which is not expected to go down well with the Blues hierarchy.
Deal ON!!! Chelsea star wanted in China
Latest report has revealed that West London outfit Chelsea star striker Gonzalo Higuain is a subject of interest from Chinese outfit Hebei China Fortune ahead of the summer transfer window.
Gonzalo Higuain only joined the West London outfit on loan last January winter transfer window with the hope of coming in to help manager Maurizio Sarri solve the issues of his lack of cutting edge but that has not happened as he has been goal shy at the Stamford Bridge.
The option of having him on a permanent deal has now been rejected by the West London outfit but there are chances he will not return back to his owners, Juventus has offers already on the table from the Chinese outfit.
It is reported that should Gonzalo Higuain accept the offer, he would land a mega-deal that will make him one of the highest paid player in the Chinese League.
Howbeit, Gonzalo Higuain is now 31 which means he has got limited time to play actively which is a contributing factor considered in the decision by the Blues team.
With Chelsea set to face their transfer ban and might not be able to register new players, they have already succeeded in having France international Olivier Giroud commit his future to the club for another year.
Ex Man United manager “confirms” Hazard exit
Former Chelsea and Man United manager Jose Mourinho has unwittingly confirmed the exit of Belgium international Eden Hazard from the Stamford Bridge in the summer transfer window.
This is after he claimed that he does not expect Eden Hazard to remain at the club after the Europa League clash against Arsenal later next week at Baku.
Eden Hazard is speculated to be on his way out of Stamford Bridge to Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid after confessing his desire to play under his football idol, Zinedine Zidane.
However, the Portuguese boss showered praise on Eden Hazard as he claims that he remains one of the best players one will ever come by which is the reason why Real Madrid will seek to land him at all cost.
The West London outfit have therefore done their best to ensure the star player remains at the club but that has not worked out as Real Madrid seem to be keen on landing him in the summer window.
Meanwhile, the West London outfit have been handed a ban from the next two summer window which means they will not be able to sign a replacement for Eden Hazard in the summer transfer window.
