Chelsea have secured the services of Edouard Mendy from Ligue 1 club Rennes on a deal worth about £22million.

The 28-year old Senegalese has signed a five-year deal from the French outfit making him Chelsea’s seventh signing of the summer transfer window.

The goal keeper is expected to be in contention for the club’s weekend fixture against West Bromwich Albion should he pass COVID-19 testing protocols.

He will compete with the Blues club record reigning, Kepa Arrizabalaga and Willy Caballerro for a starting spot between the sticks.

Mendy after completing his transfer said, “I am so excited to be joining Chelsea. It’s a dream for me to be a part of this exciting squad and to work with Frank Lampard and all of his coaching staff. I look forward to meeting my team-mates and can’t wait to get started.”

Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia said Veteran Chelsea keeper and technical adviser, Petr Cech, played a major role in the club securing the services of the shot stopper.

She said, “As soon as Petr Cech and our technical team identified Edouard as the most suitable goalkeeper to complement our existing group, there was only one player we wanted to bring in.

“Edouard arrives following a season of real success with Rennes, he is ambitious for more, and we welcome him to our club.”
