The Blues have had early conversations with Rennes over goalkeeper Edouard Mendy, as per reports.
Chelsea are hoping to upgrade between the sticks after Kepa Arrizabalaga’s baffling season last term.
The 28-year-old is accepted to be a target for Frank Lampard, however Chelsea presently can’t seem to make a formal proposal for the goalkeeper.
The club value Edouard Mendy at around £22m – altogether not exactly Rennes’ asking price from £45m.
Rennes may move on that figure, however, especially as they just paid £3 .6m for him the previous summer.
