As regards the summer transfer window, Kepa Arrizabalaga of Chelsea will join Real Madrid on loan. Los Blancos want a new goalkeeper due to Thibaut Courtois injury.

The Spanish goalie has already agreed to join the La Liga side. Meanwhile, it’s a loan without an option or obligation to buy the next campaign.

As a result, Kepa Arrizabalaga will definitely return to Stamford Bridge in 2024. However, the West London club would need a new goalkeeper to balance the squad.

Of course, Robert Sánchez recently joined the Blues this summer transfer window from Brighton Albion. And he maybe be the No.1 goalkeeper in the absence of Kepa.

Chelsea cannot dabble into the 2023-2024 season with just one goalie. Therefore, they would need to sign a new goalkeeper as Kepa Arrizabalaga’s replacement.

As a result, the West London club have a few goalies on their radar. They would want to sign a new goalkeeper this summer’s transfer window.

Reportedly, Chelsea targets Giorgi Mamardashvili of Valencia as Kepa Arrizabalaga’s replacement. The 22-year-old goalie may join the Blues family this summer.

The Premier League side showed their interests in the 22-year-old Georgian earlier this summer’s transfer window. Therefore, they may return to get his signature this season.

Giorgi Mamardashvili just 22-year-old. However, he has been making headlines with Valencia in all competitions, particularly in La Liga.

As a result, he has the ability to replace the Spanish goalkeeper. Of course, he may be part of Todd Boehly’s rebuild at the West London club this campaign.

Also, Borussia Dortmund’s Gregor Kobel is also on Chelsea’s radar. The 25-year-old Swiss goalie has been discussed internally at the Premier League side.

Robert Sánchez is Premier League proven, having seen his all-around statistics at Brighton Albion. Nevertheless, the Blues cannot bet only on him in 2023-2024.

Meanwhile, Kepa Arrizabalaga won’t be on the goal against Liverpool on Sunday. As regards their Premier League opener at Stamford Bridge.

Sánchez will definitely start for Mauricio Pochettino’s side. However, the Blues desire to sign a new goalkeeper, who will compete with him this season.

Gabriel Slonina has already joined a new club on loan. And Mauricio Pochettino doesn’t actually trust Marcus Bettinelli, so the club needs a goalkeeper.

Both Gregor Kobel and Giorgi Mamardashvili were linked to Chelsea earlier this summer. Therefore, the club may revive their interests in the two brilliant goalies.
