Chelsea is set to complete the signing of £22m goalkeeper Edouard Mendy

Edouard Mendy has reportedly agreed on a five-year deal with the Blues.

Chelsea have agreed on a fee of around £22m for Rennes goalkeeper Edouard Mendy.

The 29-year old has accepted a five-year deal with Chelsea and will soon fly to London to complete the medical and other relevant paperworks.

Mendy’s agent Djily Dieng told Senegal newspaper Stades: “The two parties have come to an agreement. All that’s left is the formalisation.

“It could even be done tomorrow if all goes well. Afterwards, the player will come to finalise everything, including having his medical examination.”

Chelsea’s record signing goalkeeper, Kepa Arrizabalaga has been under fire due to a number of high-profile errors last season and was dropped in the last few games as a result of his substandard form.

Chelsea’s technical director Petr Cech spoke last month about the Spaniard’s future, telling Sport.CZ: “Kepa struggled last season, that is unquestionable.

“But the club invested in him and gave him a long-term contract because they believe he has the qualities and attributes to be successful.

“Additions will be made to the squad, perhaps even in goal, and this is what is being discussed now. But nobody is giving up on Kepa and we all hope he has a great future.”
