Kepa Arrizabalaga – £11.7m
Chelsea would likely want more than £11.7m for a goalkeeper they spent over £70m on three years ago.
However, Kepa’s reputation has been damaged further after being replaced as the club’s No 1 towards the beginning of this season.

Emerson Palmieri – £13.5m
Emerson has featured a couple of times under Tuchel of late but is still the third-choice left-back at Stamford Bridge.
The Italy international could attract a relatively substantial fee.
Victor Moses – £5.4m
Amazingly, Moses still has a year left on his Chelsea contract once he returns from his loan at Spartak Moscow.
Despite playing a formation that would suit Moses, Tuchel is unlikely to see the 30-year-old as part of his plans
Ross Barkley – £18m
Barkley started his loan at Aston Villa strongly but an injury which ruled him out for two months stunted his progress.
There are too many players similar to Barkley at Chelsea for him to earn a spot in Tuchel’s side upon his return.
Tammy Abraham – £36m
Abraham was once again left out of the match day squad for the visit of West Brom on Saturday. Even with Timo Werner’s struggles in front of goal, the England star cannot get a look in under.
Blues plot £30m deal for Dutch midfielder
Chelsea are interested in Ajax midfielder Ryan Gravenberch, according to reports in the Italian media.
The 18-year-old has been dubbed a “better Paul Pogba” by some in the media, although he still has a lot to prove considering he is only 18 years of age.
Gravenberch is already capped at senior level by the Netherlands and he has been in decent form this season, having scored four goals and contributed six assists in 37 appearances.
Ajax are said to be holding out for around £30m to sell the teenager, but the Blues are not the only team reported to be interested in the player.
Liverpool are also believed to be a possible destination, with the Reds looking to replace Georginio Wijnaldum, while the likes Manchester United, Barcelona and Juventus have also been mentioned as potential suitors.
Chelsea are expected to reinforce their midfield options in the summer, but it remains to be seen whether Gravenberch is top of their list of targets.
Chelsea want to add some strength to their attack and have reportedly shown interest in many attackers since the past weeks, of which the latest being 32 years old Manchester City striker.
Chelsea have reportedly reached an agreement over the signing of the world class Manchester City striker, as per reports.
The 32 years old has been in an excellent form for Manchester City since his move from Atletico Madrid, and has been able to win many titles and accolades in the process.
Chelsea have shown interest in securing the services of the highly-rated former Atletico Madrid striker, who has been able to score more than 200 goals for Manchester City and in the process becoming the leading goal scorer at the Etihad Stadium.
Barcelona have been credited with an interest in the 32 years old Sergio Aguero since the past months, but Chelsea seems to be the frontrunners in pursuit of the striker, as they have reportedly reached agreement for the world class striker.
