“Not only Timo Werner” - Fabrizio Romano says ‘talks are progressing well’ for another Chelsea star to leave on loan


Kepa Arrizabalaga could be the latest player to leave Chelsea on loan this summer, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano . Chelsea have made two major additions to their squad ahead of the 2022-23 season.

They have signed Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Koulibaly from Manchester City and Napoli, respectively, for around £85 million. Meanwhile, the Blues have seen key centre- backs Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen leave on free transfers this summer.

They have also allowed Romelu Lukaku to re-join Inter Milan on loan ahead of the new campaign. It appears more players are in line to leave Stamford Bridge on a temporary deal this summer.

RB Leipzig and other clubs are in negotiations to sign Germany international Timo Werner on loan, according to Romano. The transfer expert also revealed that Arrizabalaga could follow in Lukaku's footsteps by moving to Italy.

He went on to disclose that Napoli are making progress in their talks to sign the goalkeeper. Romano wrote on Twitter:

"Not only Timo Werner, in talks with Leipzig and other clubs. Kepa could be the next player to leave Chelsea on loan this summer. Talks are progressing well between Napoli and Chelsea for Kepa, he’s the main target to replace Ospina. Work in progress."

Napoli are said to have identified Arrizabalaga as the ideal replacement for David Ospina as their first-choice goalkeeper. The Colombian has joined Saudi Arabian club Al-Nassr on a free transfer this summer.
