UPDATE: Chelsea’s Eighth Summer Signing ‘Almost Done’


Chelsea are on the verge of completing their eight summer signing with the arrival of goalkeeper Edouard Mendy from Stade Rennes.


According to The Athletic, the 28-year-old will join for a fee in the region of €20m including €5million in add-ons.


The arrival of a new goalkeeper is understood to be a ploy from Chelsea to push out-of-form Kepa Arrizabalaga who has struggled since arriving at Stamford Bridge from Athletic Bilbao.


Mendy had only joined Ligue 1 side Rennes last summer from Reims but a move to west London presents a good opportunity for the 28-year-old to impress with the number one jersey seemingly up for grabs.
