Kepa’s form has gone rather low since the last season and he is still struggling to be in the starting 11 now.
The 25 year old Spain international wants to stay at Stamford Bridge and wants to fit for his spot as the number 1 goalkeeper at Chelsea.
Former Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech has backed Kepa to improve and stay on at Chelsea – even after a replacement for him is signed this summer.
‘Kepa struggled last season, that is unquestionable,’ Cech, now a technical and performance advisor at Chelsea, told Sport.cz.
‘But the club invested in him and gave him a long-term contract because they believe he has the qualities and attributes to be successful.
‘Additions will be made to the squad, perhaps even in goal, and this is what is being discussed now. ‘But nobody is giving up on Kepa and we all hope he has a great future.’
‘The issue of reinforcements is now very much alive,’ the former Chelsea keeper added.
‘The transfer window is until the end of October this year so there will be a lot of changes after the league begins. ‘And the question is how much the coronavirus pandemic will affect everything.’
