Chelsea’s Kepa favourite to join Napoli as goalkeeper signing

Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa is currently at the top of Napoli’s shortlist of potential goalkeeper targets this summer.

While reports have linked Barcelona’s Neto to the Partenopei, Kepa is also a target for the side as they look to rope in a new goalkeeper this summer.

Alfredo Pedulla has reported that while Alex Meret is close to signing a new contract with Napoli, the club will still look to sign a new goalkeeper who has a certain amount of European experience. While Salvatore Sirigu was a target for the role not long ago, Kepa is the key target now.

The Spaniard does not want to play second-fiddle to Edouard Mendy anymore and it is stated that he is ‘tired’ of being a back-up option between the sticks. Talks between the Partenopei and the agents of the ex-Athletic Bilbao man have already taken place and he would like to move to Naples.

Relations between Chelsea and Napoli are excellent and there is a possibility that in a loan deal, the Blues can pay a majority of the wage. Nothing has been agreed between the clubs so far.
