Chelsea are on the verge of completing a £23million deal to sign Rennes goalkeeper Edouard Mendy, who will become their eighth signing of the summer transfer window
Edouard Mendy’s £23million move to Chelsea is “almost done” after the Rennes goalkeeper completed his medical in west London over the weekend.
Mendy, 28, did not train on Friday morning after holding talks with Rennes officials over his potential exit.
Later that day the French club accepted an initial £18million fee for the Senegal shot-stopper, which could eventually rise to £23million through add-ons.
He was then granted permission to fly to London and undergo his medical over the weekend, having already agreed personal terms with the Blues.
The goalkeeper is set to become Frank Lampard’s eighth signing of the summer, following the likes of Timo Werner and Kai Havertz in at Stamford Bridge.
Yet reports suggest Chelsea are not finished there, despite already spending close to £250million.
