Kepa named as top candidate in Bayern goalkeeper search

Reports claim that Bayern Munich have emerged as suitors for Kepa Arrizabalaga.
Kepa Arrizabalaga is now reportedly at the top of Bayern Munich's shortlist for a new goalkeeper.

The German champions could sign Kepa on loan with an option to buy, with the Chelsea goalkeeper himself said to be open to the move.

Bayern are looking for a new goalkeeper with Manuel Neuer still a long way from returning from the serious injury he suffered last winter.

Yann Sommer (Inter) and Alexander Nübel (Stuttgart, on loan) have left the club this summer, leaving Sven Ulreich as the only senior goalkeeper available.

Villarreal's Gerónimo Rulli is reportedly seen as an alternative to Kepa.
