Chelsea coach Frank Lampard is seriously looking for a replacement for Kepa Arrizabalaga as the Blues' main goalkeeper by targeting the Serie A keeper.

The declining performance of Kepa Arrizabalaga under the Chelsea crossbar made the coach, Frank Lampard, rushed to find a replacement.

Previously, the 41-year-old coach had entered two names as a replacement candidate for Kepa.

The two names are Burnley goalkeeper, Nick Pope, and Crystal Palace goalkeeper, Vicente Guaita.

For Pope, it is not surprising that Lampard put his attention on seeing statistics with Burnley this season.

Pope is the goalkeeper with the highest number of goals, with Alisson Becker and Dean Henderson, with a total of nine clean sheets.


No goalkeeper has more clean sheets than than Nick Pope's - level with Alisson and Dean Henderson

While Guaita entered Lampard's consideration because of his experience.

The 33-year-old goalkeeper has always been the main goalkeeper at the clubs he inhabits such as Getafe, Valencia and Palace.

However, as if it were not enough with just two candidates, Lampard added one more name to the list of candidates to replace Kepa.

The player is Bartlomiej Dragowski from Fiorentina.

Dragowski is considered to be the right replacement for Kepa at Chelsea.

The reason, Dragowski, who was only 22 years old, has become a regular starter for Fiorentina this season.

In addition, Dragowski is also the goalkeeper with the best penalty-saving ratio in the Italian League.

Of the four penalties he has faced, Dragowski successfully saved three of them.


Bartlomiej has saved 3 of the last 4 penalties faced in the top-flight, including the last two (against Lazio and Genoa). Expert.

With only 22 years old, Dragowski could also be a long-term solution for Chelsea.

That's because their current goalkeeper, Willy Caballero, is 38 years old.

That way, it is natural for Lampard to make Dragowski as one of the candidates to replace Kepa under the Chelsea crossbar.
