What Kepa has said about his £71m transfer fee and replacing Thibaut Courtois at Chelsea


Chelsea's Kepa Arrizabalaga has said that he doesn't feel the added pressure of being the most expensive goalkeeper in world football. Not once, but twice this summer the transfer record for a stopper was broken. Liverpool opted to splash out a reported £66.9m ลิ้ ง sbo fee to sign Alisson Becker from AS Roma shortly after the World Cup, but the Reds were outdone by the Blues on deadline day. Needing a replacement for Real Madrid-bound Thibaut Courtois, the west London outfit got their man after activating Kepa 's £71m buyout clause at La Liga outfit Athletic Club. Thus giving the Spaniard the tag of the most expensive keeper in football history.

It does mean there will be an added scrutiny on his performances for club and country, but Kepa insists he feels little pressure about his transfer fee as well as filling the boots of Courtois. "I wouldn't call it pressure, ลิ้ ง sbo I would just say it is how the transfer market goes," he told Sky Sports. "He went and I came in and I'm not one to focus on the comings and goings. "I'm focused on myself and there is a great opportunity for me to come here. I wanted to take advantage of this and enjoy my football and look forward and not back. "I'm happy here both on a personal and a team level and I'm happy here in London. Looking towards the future excites me with the possibilities we have to improve and I'm excited about what the future might bring."

Kepa has quickly established himself as the first-choice stopper under Maurizio Sarri this season. He's made 25 appearances across all competitions, got the nod over David de Gea in a recent international friendly and says he's only focused on matters on the field rather than off it. "Obviously the price was very high - £71m is a lot of money," Kepa added. ลิ้ ง sbo "I'm aware of this but given the transfer market situation and how things are going, it is normal so I don't need to focus on the value of the transfer. "I do need to focus on playing my football and what's happening on the pitch rather than off it. I want to be myself and not think about it.
