Chelsea agree £25m deal for Rennes goalkeeper Edouard Mendy. He will become Chelsea’s seventh signing this summer.
Chelsea have agreed a deal worth up to £25million with Rennes for goalkeeper Edouard Mendy.
The 28-year-old Senegal international will become Chelsea’s seventh signing of the summer once details are finalised and will provide immediate competition for under-fire Kepa Arrizabalaga and Willy Caballero.
Mendy was pulled out of training with his Rennes team-mates on Friday after Chelsea’s bid was accepted and held talks with his agent and club president Nicolas Holveck before setting off for London ahead of his medical.
Chelsea conceded 54 goals in 38 Premier League games last season and manager Frank Lampard wants Mendy to help eradicate such a poor record.
