Kepa Arrizabalaga is targeting sustained success with Chelsea after moving to Stamford Bridge for a world-record fee for a goalkeeper. Arrizabalaga, 23, joined from Athletic Bilbao for 80 million euros (Rs 636 cr), after Chelsea met his buyout clause. Kepa could make his Chelsea debut in tomorrow's Premier League clash at Huddersfield.

The recruitment of the Spain international on a seven-year contract allowed Thibaut Courtois to depart for Real Madrid, with Croatia midfielder Mateo Kovacic moving in the opposite direction on a season-long loan.

Kepa said: "All clubs need to fight to win titles and what all players want is to win. So what I would like is to win more titles for the club. I would like to be remembered at this club when I leave years down the line as a goalkeeper that has helped the club win a lot of titles and gone down in history in that way." "It's a squad full of fantastic players. We have a very exciting season ahead of us, so let's go for it."
