Chelsea identify two possible replacements for number one goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, according to a report.

Chelsea have reportedly identified two possible replacements for Kepa Arrizabalaga as the Spain international's future continues to be called into question.

Kepa has regained his spot in Frank Lampard's starting XI since the Premier League restart, but the goalkeeper again struggled to perform in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to West Ham United.

According to Le 10 Sport, Lille's Mike Maignan and Paris Saint-Germain's Alphonse Areola are viewed by the Premier League giants as possible replacements between the sticks.

Maignan, who has also recently been linked with Tottenham Hotspur, has been in impressive form for his French club during the 2019-20 campaign, keeping 13 clean sheets in 37 appearances in all competitions.

Areola, meanwhile, has spent this season on loan at Real Madrid, but the 27-year-old has only made three league appearances for Los Blancos and is set to return to his parent club this summer.

Both Maignan and Areola will allegedly be allowed to leave their respective sides ahead of the 2020-21 campaign for the right price.
