Edouard Mendy is apparently having a medical at Chelsea ahead of completing a move from Ligue 1 side Rennes this summer.
Chelsea are accepted to have just agreed terms with the goalkeeper and his club on a deal worth up to £22m.
Report guarantees that Edouard Mendy arrived in London on Monday to put the final little details to the move, which is anticipated to be reported on Tuesday.
Edouard Mendy is anticipated to go straight into Chelsea’s starting XIs following another disastrous display from Kepa Arrizabalaga in Sunday’s defeat to the Champions Liverpool.
Chelsea boss is said to have recently wanted to sign Mike Maignan, but Lille’s £32m valuation put Chelsea off making a move for the goalkeeper.
The Senegal international kept nine clean sheets in 24 Ligue 1 appearances in 2019-20 and has played once for Rennes so far this season.
