Kepa hints at loan move away from Chelsea as he slams Frank Lampard’s ‘not so elaborate’ football

Following the loan departure of record-signing Romelu Lukaku, Chelsea’s second-most-expensive signing could also be set for a loan spell away from London, with Kepa Arizzabalaga revealing that he needs to be playing more football than he currently is.

The Spaniard, who joined Chelsea for a then-record £72m in 2018, has lost his place in between the posts for both Chelsea and Spain during his time in west London, and only managed four Premier League appearances last campaign.

And, speaking to Spanish media, he suggested that he would be open to a loan move away from Stamford Bridge this summer. Asked about whether he would rule out a spell away from the Blues, the 27-year-old claimed that while he was a Chelsea player, he needed to play more.

‘Right now I am a Chelsea player, but what I am clear about is that I want to play more, because I come from a year or two where, when I have played, I have had a great performance’, he explained.

‘I am not desperate. In the end, I’m at a great club… I’ll talk to the coach and we’ll decide, but with the clear message that I want to play more’, the Spaniard added.

Kepa slams Lampard’s tactics

Meanwhile, Kepa has also highlighted the difference between Frank Lampard’s demands of him and Thomas Tuchel’s, claiming that the German manager’s tactics are far more advanced than the now Everton boss.

‘We came from a not so elaborate game [with Lampard], we didn’t have to take the ball from behind, a less planned game, more to the free expression of the player, back and forth and less control’, he told the Spanish outlet.

‘With Tuchel we have returned to control. It is true that in the Premier we were not close to the top two, but in the other tournaments we have been very competitive’, Kepa added.
