New keeper, no Kepa?
Chelsea will listen to offers for Kepa Arrizabalaga after Frank Lampard lost patience with the goalkeeper when dropping him for the final Premier League game of the season, the Daily Mail reports. The Blues bought Kepa for £72m two years ago, and will now hope to fetch around £50m for the Spaniard. Burnley keeper Nick Pope and Ajax’s Andre Onana are on Chelsea’s radar, with the club considering a long-term loan move for Kepa.
Paper Round’s view: Chelsea’s season is not over quite yet… so despite dropping Kepa on Sunday it will be intriguing to see whether Lampard recalls him for the FA Cup final against Arsenal on Saturday, and then the Champions League in August. Two final chances for Kepa? Given what’s at stake, Lampard has a huge call to make.
Zaha can leave Palace
Wilfried Zaha is free to leave Crystal Palace this summer – for only the right price, the Mirror reports. The 27-year-old has three years remaining on his contract at Selhurst Park, and after years of being linked with a move away the winger appears to be on his way out. Everton are interested, although Palace’s asking price is not yet clear.

Paper Rounds’ view: Zaha has been a ‘wantaway’ for a while now, but did he really dream of moving somewhat sideways to Everton when planning his route out? He will no doubt hope interest arises elsewhere, but there may not be too many willing to pay whatever Palace demand.
Spurs renew Hojbjerg interest
Tottenham are in talks with Southampton over a fee for Pierre Emile Hojbjerg, the Daily Mail reports. Everton were said to be keen on the midfielder, but the 24-year-old would prefer a move to London. The Saints are expected to demand £25m for the Danish international.
Paper Round’s view: The midfielder Spurs need? Hard to say, but it is certainly a spot for the taking given Jose Mourinho is not the biggest Tanguy Ndombele fan, while Harry Winks and Moussa Sissoko could do with some healthy competition.
