Chelsea sign Senegal goalkeeper Edouard Mendy

Chelsea have completed the signing of Senegal goalkeeper Edouard Mendy from Rennes.

28-year-old Mendy has put pen to paper on a five-year deal with Frank Lampard’s side for a fee believed to be €24m (£22m).

The London club wanted a new goalkeeper following the disappointing performances of Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Kepa has struggled for form and been error prone since arriving from Athletic Bilbao for €80m.

Mendy will provide strong competition for the Spaniard as well as Willy Caballero, Chelsea’s other goalkeeper.

The French-born Senegalese international only moved to Rennes a year ago, arriving from Reims.

But in 34 appearances for the Ligue 1 club, he showed great quality, conceding only 32 goals.
