How to "predict" no data in a raster

I have a raster with 18 different landcover types.

I want to remove one of the landcover types but instead of having it replaced with NoData, I want to use the surrounding cells to predict what they would be if that landcover type wasn't present.

Is there a way to do this? I was thinking IDW or spline but those require point data.

Thank you
