West London giants Chelsea are hoping to raise at least £40m from the sale of goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga next summer according to the report via the Daily Mirror.

Kepa Arrizabalaga is no longer the number one goalkeeper at Chelsea following the arrival of Edouard Mendy from French club Rennes earlier this week.

According to British media outlet Metro, the Blues have made Kepa Arrizabalaga available for a loan transfer in a bid for the Spanish international to regain his form and confidence to enable the club sell him for a big transfer fee next summer.

The 25-year-old has lost form and confidence in the Chelsea goal. He has been responsible for at least one goal in each of the two Premier League games played by the Blues this season.

Kepa Arrizabalaga is the most expensive goalkeeper in the world after Chelsea paid a then club-record fee of £71m for the Spaniard. He joined the West London team from Athletic Bilbao in the Spanish La Liga.

New goalkeeper signing Edouard Mendy is expected to assume the number one goalkeeper role at Chelsea for the remainder of this season.

Mendy, 28, joined Chelsea in a £22m deal this week after weeks of negotiations between the Blues and Rennes.
