English Premier League club, Chelsea FC are reportedly set to sign Rennes F.C goal keeper, Eduoard Mendy for £25million.
It is understood that Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is keen to bolster his goalkeeping options after losing faith in record £71.6m signing Kepa Arrizabalaga from Athletic Bilbao two-years ago.
Several reports reveal that Chelsea are edging closer to securing Mendy from Rennes despite already spending upwards of £200m during this summer’s transfer window.
Chelsea have already added the likes of Kai Havertz (£72m), Timo Werner (£47.7m), Ben Chilwell (£45.18m), Hakim Ziyech (£36m), Malang Sarr (free) and Thiago Silva (free) to their ranks.
Mendy, 28, joined Rennes from domestic rivals Stade Reims last summer and has gone onto make 34 first-team appearances for the Ligue 1 side.
