REAL MADRID are reportedly considering a summer swoop for Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.
Frank Lampard is allegedly hoping to get rid of Kepa at the end of the season and bring in Barcelona keeper Marc-Andre Ter Stegen.
The Daily Star claim that Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane is weighing up a potential bid for the Blues shot-stopper.
He joined Chelsea from Athletic Bilbao for a club record £71million in August 2018.
But Lampard is ready to ditch him in the summer as he has made a number of costly mistakes.
The Spaniard has only kept six clean sheets in 25 Premier League appearances this season.
Madrid’s move for Kepa will give Chelsea the go-ahead to step up their pursuit for top target Ter Stegen.
Ter Stegen has been linked with a move away from the Nou Camp following his reported bust-up with Lionel Messi.
The German keeper has made 224 appearances for Barca since he joined from Borussia Monchengladbach in 2014.
