The Blues broke the world-record fee for a goalkeeper by signing Arrizabalaga, but who exactly is the 23-year-old?

With Thibaut Courtois seemingly on his way out of Stamford Bridge ahead of his move to Spanish giants Real Madrid, Chelsea have taken their first steps towards securing his replacement.

Courtois, part of the Belgium team that enjoyed their most successful ever World Cup, was due to return to training on Monday, but didn't show up.

At 80 million euros, Arrizabalaga will become the most expensive goalkeeper in football history, ahead of Liverpool's Alisson Becker, who moved from AS Roma for 75 million euros earlier in the transfer window.
