Chelsea Football Club has announced the signing of Kepa Arrizabalaga from Athletic Bilbao who is said to be a world-record holder in the just concluded FIFA Worldcup tournament in Russia.
The former Super Eagles and Barcelona forward’s target, will be to get the Taifa Stars Africa Cup of Nations qualifying campaign back on track. Tanzania are in group L of the 2019 Afcon qualifiers alongside Uganda, Lesotho and Cape Verde.
Barcelona finally have a replacement for Dani Alves. After playing Sergi Roberto out of position for much of last season and then switching to a three-man defence to hide their lack of a genuine right-back, the Catalan club signed a specialist in the summer. And Nelson Semedo has not disappointed.
Conte will not want to play Eden Hazard as a centre-forward, as he did at the King Power, for the remaining 17 games of the season but it was an effective alternative on this occasion.
