Loan move for Kepa Arrizabalaga this January is almost certain

Chelsea will be considering a number of transfer decisions for January, which is now fast-approaching.

There will be a handful of players who will be looking to move away from Stamford Bridge this winter in order to get a lot more game time with the European Championships coming up this summer.

The likes of Olivier Giroud, Emerson Palmieri, and Kepa Arrizabalaga will have an eye on the Euros and their current lack of game time at Chelsea, and it is the latter who is almost certain to go out on loan this January, according to Eurosport.

The report states that a loan move is the easiest way to get around his fee and wages in the short term, and then work on a permanent plan for the summer.

Kepa has lost his number one spot to the excellent Edouard Mendy, and he looks to be going from strength to strength since arriving at The Bridge this summer.

Petr Cech has also come out of retirement and looks more than ready to step up again when needed. So this is a move that I see very likely this winter.
