Kepa sends message to Chelsea about his £71m price tag

Kepa Arrizabalaga made sure to stop the dangerous efforts from Hungarians Vidi to help Chelsea cinch the top spot of their Europa League table.

The 71 million pounds signing from Basque outfit Athletic Bilbao has kept his head above water between the sticks, admitting he is happy playing for Chelsea, under Sarri.

The towering  goalie confessed he is grateful for being handpicked by Sarri to be a part of his squad.

Since taking charge of the role after the painful exit of former goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, Arrizabalaga has not lost a single match contest this season.

And the 23-year-old now turned 24, says he is just focused on making sure he’s at his best for Chelsea, on the pitch.

Kepa told Omnisport: “I am really happy how the things are going right now. How this experience has begun, the results, my feelings and the team’s ones. It’s still early, the season is long but I am really happy how the things are going.

“It’s normal that when someone pay that amount of money they talk about your transfer. You have to show your value but I am not focused on my price, I am just trying to do my job. I am really grateful for his confidence to sign me. Obviously he was key for me joining the club. I feel really comfortable on the way he likes to play, I am so happy and grateful.”

The Basque-born player joined Chelsea for a shocking World record fee of 71 million pounds in August and revealed he still returns to former club Bilbao.
