Chelsea had a very busy summer transfer market this season after completing a one-year transfer ban last season. To continue the process of rebuilding the squad Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has already signed some big names like Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech, Kai Havertz, Ben Chilwell, Malang Sarr and Thiago Silva. Now they are keen to sign goalkeeper Eduardo Mendy from Rennes.

Chelsea had faced multiple problems in the goalkeeping position in the last two seasons. The performance of Kepa Arrizabalaga and Willy Caballero was not up to the mark. Kepa has faced a disastrous last season. It was expected that Frank Lampard will try to end the goalkeeping problems this summer.

At first, it was rumoured that Chelsea is trying to sign Jan Oblak from Atletico Madrid. But Atletico is not ready to sell their star goalkeeper. So Chelsea has now turned their eye on Mendy.


The 28-year-old French goalkeeper has kept 13 clean sheets for Rennes in his 33 appearances last season. Chelsea made a first bid of €20m which was rejected by Rennes as per some reports.

Now, Chelsea have offered around €30m to Rennes for Mendy.

According to transfer journalist Fabrizio Romano, Rennes has accepted the latest bid by Chelsea. Mendy is set to travel to London to complete his medicals as the transfer fee and the personal terms have already been agreed upon.

Edouard Mendy will be giving Kepa a tough run for the first-choice goalkeeping position. Kepa wasn’t at his best last season so it would definitely give Mendy a chance to shine at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea will also consider a move for Declan Rice on following days but won’t pay €80m. West Ham United insist they don’t want to sell Rice but Chelsea wants him as Bakayoko is not in Lampard plans.
