Chelsea’s options (rumored) to replace Kepa Arrizabalaga are growing by the day, with another goalkeeper linked from Serie A today. Following the recent (and obvious) claims about Gianluigi Donnarumma, now it’s Juan Musso’s turn.

The Udinese starting goalkeeper and Argentina international is said to “intrigue” Chelsea so much that a “real and true offer” is imminent in the next few weeks. That’s the story from Gazzetta dello Sport (via Sport Witness), who add that Udinese would be willing to deal at around €30m, which is certainly on the affordable end of the scale and could be reasonable enough to add Musso as competition, too, rather than a strict replacement.

Musso, who’s just a few months older than Kepa, joined Udinese last season from Racing Club, and has since established himself as a key player for the midtable Serie A outfit. He’s been at least comparable to Donnarumma in most goalkeeping metrics this season, and better in a couple crucial ones, including post-shot xG differential per-90.
