Chelsea are struggling to find interest from other clubs for goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, according to reports.
Blues boss Frank Lampard is believed to be open to selling the Spain international, who arrived as Thibaut Courtois’ replacement following a £72million move from Athletic Bilbao in 2018.
However, despite having established himself as first-choice goalkeeper, 38-year-old Willy Caballero replaced Kepa between the sticks for Chelsea during a run of six matches in January and February, including crucial games against Leicester, Manchester United, Tottenham and Bayern Munich.

But the Spaniard has made a number of high-profile errors for the Blues this season
Lampard inherited the £72million Kepa upon his arrival at the club, but a series of high-profile errors have seen the Spanish stopper come under serious scrutiny.
And according to ESPN, Chelsea have made moves to sound out interest in him from some of Europe’s leading clubs via intermediaries, but the report claims there is very little appetite to take the 25-year-old off Lampard’s hands.
While Kepa has a contract at Stamford Bridge until 2025, the club face a dilemma about how to move forward with their goalkeeper situation.
His errors led to veteran Willy Caballero replacing him in crucial fixtures at the start of 2020
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is now eager to sell the Spain international in the next window
Caballero is set to leave at the end of the season, and Chelsea are therefore exploring the option of signing another senior goalkeeper.
Ajax goalkeeper Andre Onana has been strongly linked with a summer move, while AC Milan stopper Gianluigi Donnarumma is another reported target.
Eredivisie side Ajax however have reportedly put a £35million price tag on Onana after he also attracted interest from Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain.
Lampard is understood to want to move quickly, in order to settle the goalkeeping situation at Stamford Bridge once and for all.
