Chelsea are scouting Udinese goalkeeper Juan Musso as they seek a replacement for Kepa Arrizabalaga, according to reports in Italy.
The website TuttoUdinese.it claims that the Blues have been “observing” the 25-year-old for “some time” and that the shot-stopper has a number of admirers in the recruitment department at Stamford Bridge.
Udinese would likely consider selling Musso for around €30m (£25m) which wouldn’t put off Chelsea from making a bid. The Argentine has made 22 appearances in Serie A this season, conceding 35 goals and keeping seven clean sheets despite his club languishing in 15th place.
His impressive performances saw him get his first senior cap for Argentina in March last year, coming off the bench in a 1-0 friendly win over Morocco.
Whether Chelsea do actually make a move for Musso, it remains to be seen, but it seems as though Kepa’s days at the Blues could be numbered. The Spaniard was dropped for the 2-2 draw against Leicester at the weekend, with some reports even suggesting he has played his last game for the club.
