Chelsea agree deal with Rennes for Senegal goalkeeper Edouard Mendy

Chelsea have agreed a deal with Rennes to sign goalkeeper Edouard Mendy.

The Senegalese international, 28, is wanted by manager Frank Lampard to increase competition with club record £71m signing Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Kepa Arrizabalaga has struggled to live up to expectations since arriving in West London in 2018, and Mendy is expected to provide stiff competition for the Spanish shot-stopper next season.

Last season for Rennes, Mendy kept nine clean sheets in 24 Ligue 1 appearances, compared to Kepa’s eight cleans sheets in 33 Premier League appearances.

Mendy’s save percentage was 76.3% and he conceded a goal every 114 minutes. Kepa’s save percentage was 53.5%, conceding a goal every 63 minutes.

However, Kepa’s passing accuracy was 79.7% compared to Mendy’s 70.1%.
