Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel says he won't seek to push Kepa Arrizabalaga out of the club.

The German, however, knows Kepa may seek a move after playing second fiddle to Edouard Mendy this season.

After last night's 1-1 draw with Leicester City, Tuchel said, "It depends what he wants and it depends what his plans are, but I know that we are very privileged to have Edou (Mendy) and Kepa in our squad. I know for sure that Kepa is not happy about the situation and he deserves to play more and he can be a strong number one.

"He arrived as a number one goalkeeper so the situation is not easy. I can tell you that he is a fantastic team player since day one and always was and never let anybody down. So no, we did not have this conversation.

"I know the goalkeepers coaches have these conversations at the moment and then we will take our time to speak with him, reflect what's best, what the possibilities are and I'm, of course as a coach, super happy to have both strong goalkeepers. Let's see."
