The Blues have confirmed that they have activated Spain international Kepa Arrizabalaga's release clause of £71 million to sign him from LaLiga side Athletic Bilbao.

"It’s a very important decision for me, for my career, and also for my personal life," Kepa told the club's official website.
 
"So many things attracted me to the club, all the titles the club has won, the other players, the city, the English Premier League. It’s an accumulation of things, and I am very glad Chelsea has decided to trust me and to take me in as well."
 
Arrizabalaga becomes Chelsea's third signing of the window, following the arrival of Jorginho from Napoli and Robert Green from Huddersfield Town.
