Lazio goalkeepers Thomas Strakosha and Pepe Reina have failed to convince Sarri and the Italian believes Kepa is the ideal signing for the Italian side.
Kepa was brought to Stamford Bridge by Sarri back in 2018 for £71.6million from Athletic Bilbao.
The goalkeeper became the most expensive goalkeeper in history when he completed a £71m move to Chelsea from Athletic Bilbao in 2018, but he has failed to justify his price-tag and endured a difficult spell at the club.
According to Italian media outlet Corriere dello Sport, Kepa is a dream signing for Sarri and Lazio director of football Igli Tare also wants the Chelsea goalkeeper.
It is reported that talks over a potential loan move for the 27-year-old took place in the summer but he ended up staying at Chelsea to battle Edouard Mendy for the No1 spot under Thomas Tuchel.
Lazio want Kepa on loan but won’t be able to afford his £150,000 a week wages. Chelsea ‘would need to pay at least half of Kepa’s wages’ for any loan to be possible.
