Chelsea has confirmed the signing of Roberto Sanchez from Brighton.
The Blues agreed to a fee in the region of £25 million for the 25-year-old goalkeeper on Saturday night.
He penned a seven-year contract and he will battle Kepa Arrizabalaga for the No. 1 spot at Stamford Bridge.
Edouard Mendy joined Saudi Pro League side Al Ahli in June and Chelsea has been looking to bolster their goalkeeping options.
Sanchez fell out of favour towards the end of the previous season at Brighton and wants to resurrect his career at the West London club.
“I started really my career here in England. Brighton has given and provided me everything I needed as a goalkeeper inside and outside the pitch to get the maximum potential out of me which I’m really happy I have done and thankful. Obviously now it is another bigger challenge and I’m ready for it,” Sanchez said.
“Choosing Chelsea was the best choice that I could have picked because of the opportunities that they have presented in front of me is amazing to develop more as a goalkeeper, learning and to compete for the spot and show everybody how good I can be.”
