And Chelsea are working on moving both players on, according to Fabrizio Romano.

Sarr is also believed to be in talks with multiple Ligue 1 clubs – despite Fulham’s bid.

Meanwhile Kepa’s agent is due to meet Napoli chiefs today to discuss a possible move.

The Blues have already lost Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen this summer but appear open to letting Sarr leave too.

Additions have been made at the back with the signing of Kalidou Koulibaly, while Marc Cucurella is closing in on a switch to Stamford Bridge.

Leicester star Wesley Fofana is also a target which means Sarr’s opportunities next season could be limited.

Kepa meanwhile has fallen firmly out of favour ever since Edouard Mendy’s arrival last year.

The £72million flop is believed to be nearing a loan switch to Serie A side Napoli.

It’s been reported Chelsea will still have to fork out 75 per cent of Arrizabalaga’s £150,000-a-week salary.

The imminent arrival of Gabriel Slonina from Chicago Fire opens the door for Kepa to leave.

The 18-year-old American shot-stopper is set to join for£12.25million after putting pen to paper on a six-year contract.

Although he will remain on loan with the MLS side until the end of their campaign.
