Chelsea have agreed a deal to sign Rennes goalkeeper Edouard Mendy, according to the player’s agent.
We have been the most active side in the transfer window this summer and have spent some big money to sign the likes of Ben Chilwell, Timo Werner, Kai Havertz and Hakim Ziyech, who are considered to be the best in their positions.
But Frank Lampard is not impressed by Spanish ace Kepa and was keen to add a more experienced stopper between the sticks, and to give the Spaniard more of a challenge next season
Mendy is now due to travel to London to undergo a medical with the and put the finishing touches on his move to Stamford Bridge after his agent opened up and confirmed that a deal had been agreed between the two clubs.
‘The two parties have come to an agreement,’ Djily Dieng told Senegalese newspaper Stades.
‘All that’s left is the formalisation. It could even be done tomorrow, if all goes well.
‘Afterwards, the player himself will come to finalise everything, including having his medical examination.’
Mendy is not the elite stopper that many fans were hoping to see arrive at the club this summer window, but he is impressive and will add some much needed depth to the squad.
His arrival and maybe Declan Rice will surely be the only two signings that Lampard gets to make before the end of the transfer window, but it is looking like it could be a very exciting season for us guys
