Chelsea boss Frank Lampard allegedly gives goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga the rest of the season to prove himself or face being sold during the summer.

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is reportedly prepared to sell Kepa Arrizabalaga if the goalkeeper does not improve during the rest of the season.

While the Blues sit in fourth position in the Premier League table, Arrizabalaga has made a number of errors this season, contributing to him having the lowest save ratio in the top flight.

Lampard has no intention of making a change before the end of January, likely leaving deputy Willy Caballero to continue on the substitutes' bench.

However, The Telegraph suggests that the Spaniard will be allowed to leave Stamford Bridge if he does not prove himself in the coming months.

Despite the 25-year-old having a contract until 2025, Lampard has seemingly began to lose patience with the former Athletic Bilbao man.

Chelsea have been credited with an interest in Burnley stopper Nick Pope.
