Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid have reportedly turned their attention to Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga with the hopes of signing him as replacement for Thibaut Courtois.

Kepa Arrizabalaga joined Chelsea last summer as he replaced Courtois at Stamford Bridge, but the Spanish goalkeeper has endured a turbulent first season in the Premier League.

Courtois has not played in any of Real Madrid's four matches since Zidane succeeded Santiago Solari missing the last three due to an undisclosed injury.

And according to the latest report by Teamtalk, Real Madrid want a new goalkeeper at the end of the ongoing season and Kepa is their main target.

Kepa in February refused to be subbed in Chelsea's Carabao Cup final against Manchester City which made the Blues' gaffer livid.

But Real Madrid will have to offer more than £71.6 million which Chelsea paid for the Spaniard from Athletic Bilbao to have any chance of signing Kepa.

Initially, Real Madrid want Manchester United goalie David De Gea, but the Red Devils are said to have made it clear of not having interest in doing business with Los Blancos.

Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Kepa Arrizabalaga had a serious row with Maurizio Sarri after Chelsea's Carabao Cup final defeat against Manchester City.

Report revealed that the Chelsea first choice goalkeeper also faced off with second choice Willy Caballero after the game as he said he is better than the Argentine.

Arrizabalaga reportedly told Willy Caballero in the dressing room that he was better than him at Wembley and that was why he refused to be substituted towards the end of the extra time.
