Chelsea are very close to concluding a deal for Rennes shot-stopper Edouard Mendy, as per a report.
The west London club have been connected with various goalkeepers since the end of last season because of Kepa Arrizabalaga shaky form.
The Blues just added six new outfield players to their squad ahead of the 2020-21 season, report guarantees that another goalkeeper is presently close to moving to Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea technical director Petr Cech is supposed leading talks with Rennes and a breakthrough seems to have been reached, with the clubs obviously agreeing a fee for Edouard Mendy.
Edouard Mendy, who could cost more than £20m, has spent only one full season at Roazhon Park subsequent to joining from Ligue 1 rivals Reims a year ago.
Then, Chelsea’s spending isn’t anticipated to stop there as another holding midfielder – either Lille’s Boubakary Soumare or West Ham United defensive midfielder Declan Rice – is evidently also on Frank Lampard’s radar.
