Chelsea are desperately shopping for a goalkeeper after enduring numerous mistakes from Kepa Arrizabalaga all through the recently concluded Premier League season.

The Spaniard conceded 47 goals in 33 EPL appearances and was only able to keep eight clean sheets all through the campaign.

He was benched for Wilfredo Caballero in their last game of the season against Wolverhampton Wanderers in their last game of the season.

The game saw Mason Mount and Olivier Giroud fire the Blues into Champions League qualification next season.

And Ajax number one Andre Onana appears to be the former midfielder's first choice but has to contend with Bayer Leverkusen for the keeper's signature.

SunSport reports that the German League giants already made an £18 million offer for the Cameroonian shot-stopper but it was rejected by Erik ten Hag's side as reported by Goal's Ronan Murphy.

But Chelsea hopes their new signing Hakim Ziyech will help them convince his former teammate to come to Stamford Bridge.

The 24-year-old might decide to leave the Dutch side despite having two more years on his current deal with Ajax.

Lampard's side has enquired about Atletico Madrid's goaltender Jan Oblak who has been valued around £90 million according to the club's assistant boss German Burgos.

He told Marca: "If I only quote one who I would take from Atletico Madrid, it would be bad - I have to name them all. "Look, the Russian [Roman Abramovich] wants to take Oblak."

Kepa was rated worst goalkeeper in save percentage in Europe's top-five leagues despite joining Chelsea in a world-record fee two years ago from Athletic Bilbao.

Meanwhile, Valencia might end the £71 million rated 25-year-old's nightmare at Stamford Bridge, but a deal may have to be a loan move rather than a permanent transfer.

Legit.ng earlier reported that Kepa Arrizabalaga is willing to take a pay cut to end his traumatic stay at Chelsea, The Sun Sports reports.

The 27-year-old has consistently been called out for his mistakes in between the sticks for the Stamford Bridge outfit.

Chelsea's 5-3 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield has placed the keeper under more scrutiny after leaving their Champions League hopes hanging in the balance.
