Kepa to be replaced as Chelsea ‘have agreed’ £29.5 million deal for impressing stopper?

Chelsea have reportedly made their move for Trabzonspor goalkeeper Ugurcan Cakir, as a possible replacement for Kepa.

Chelsea have already been busy before the transfer window has even opened up, nailing down a number of players to new contracts and landing two very exciting top-class players that will make an impression on the side.

But there is some bad news, Lampard needs to delve into that transfer kitty in the coming months and add a top-class defender and a new stopper to the side, especially as Kepa has not been good enough this season, and is seemingly not getting better.

Lampard had been happy with Kepa Arrizabalaga at the start of the season until his inconsistency began to lose Chelsea points in the race for the top four, and since the restart Kepa’s vulnerability from set-pieces has made the Blues pay, with Lampard set on signing a new goalkeeper this summer.

And According to Turkish outlet Haber 365, Chelsea have struck an agreement with Trabzonspor to sign Cakir.

The report states that the clubs have agreed a fee of €33m (£29.5m), who will move to west London this summer.

Lampard reportedly asked technical advisor Petr Cech to help him find a new goalkeeper alongside Marina Granovskaia, and they have reportedly been impressed with Cakir and his performances this season and since the football once again got re-started.

Look, Kepa has been handed enough chances this season to prove himself and time and time again, he has failed to impress Lampard and the fans, so if the reports are true and Chelsea have agreed a deal for Cakir, the Blues would be getting a very good stopper.

He is solid and ready to test himself in the best League in the world, is he the right man for Chelsea? that will be the question that he will need to prove if he gets that move to Chelsea.
