Chelsea Smart Buy To Arrizabalaga
Chelsea's decision to bring Kepa Arriazabalaga this summer won praise from Shaka Hislop. Hislop believes the Blues have taken the right steps because they bring in a very good goalkeeper. Chelsea themselves are forced to buy a new goalkeeper at the end of the transfer market this summer. They lost the figure of Thibaut Courtois who decided to leave for Real Madrid. Instead Chelsea officially brought Kepa Arrizabalaga from Athletic Bilbao. The Blues must break the world transfer record to get the goalkeeper, where they pay £ 71.6 million for the Spanish national team goalkeeper. But Hislop himself rate the money of 71.6 million pounds that will not be in vain because Kepa will transform into one of the world's best goalkeepers. Hislop considered Chelsea were not wrong to bring Kepa to Stamford Bridge. He considered the goalkeeper to have great potential as a goalkeeper. One of the qualities that made Ex West Ham goalkeeper amazed was the ability of Kepa to stop the shots which he thought were above average. "What I saw from him while at Chelsea and also Athletic Bilbao was that he was an extraordinary shot-stopper," opened Hislop to ESPN FC. In Hislop's observation, not many goalkeepers have the same quality as Head. He even believes that the player can become one of the best goalkeepers in the future. "I don't think there are many goalkeepers who have as good an ability as him. As far as I can see, there are only four goalkeepers who have better abilities than him in the Premier League." "I think Chelsea have made an extraordinary purchase. You have to pay attention to its development, because I think he can be a better goalkeeper in the future." he said. Kepa himself appeared nicely at the beginning of his career at Chelsea. So far he has made 2 clean sheets from four EPL opening matches this season.
