Kepa has been drafted in to replace Thibaut Courtois, who has moved to Real Madrid in a £35m deal.

The midfielder has developed a strong friendship with Modric since joining Real Madrid in 2015 and admits he spoke to the former Tottenham player before deciding to move to Stamford Bridge.

The 24-year-old Croatia worldwide arrives at Stamford Bridge with a big reputation, but there is no official option for Chelsea to make the move permanent after the 2018/19 season.

Courtois has passed a medical in the Spanish capital and put pen to paper on a six-year contract.

It is being reported that a deal has been agreed with Athletic Bilbao's Kepa Arrizabalaga for a fee in the region of £71 million, which would become the record amount spent on a goalkeeper.

Luka Modric returned to training at Real Madrid on Wednesday along with five other World Cup players, against a background of contradictory rumours about his future.

While not discussing the status of the transfer, Chelsea coach Maurizio Sarri said that Kepa was "very young, but very, very good".

"For me, Courtois is one of the best", he said on Sky Sports' Premier League launch show. Sarri also hinted that Eden Hazard is likely to stay at the London club.
