With that said, here are the latest Chelsea transfer rumours.

Mendy ‘agrees’ terms

Edouard Mendy has agreed personal terms with Chelsea ahead of his £25m transfer move from Rennes, according to RMC Sport.

It’s claimed that the goalkeeper will sign a five-year deal at Stamford Bridge.

And Rennes captain Damien Da Silva has already ‘confirmed’ the deal is likely to happen.

“We are a little selfish, we don’t want to lose Edouard Mendy,” he told Telefoot. “But it’s part of football and the transfer market.

“He’s a great goalkeeper who deserves what happens to him.”

Second Rice bid

After concluding a deal for Mendy, Chelsea are expected to turn their attentions to West Ham United’s Declan Rice.

This is according to Sky Sports reporter Angelo Mangiante.

He has tweeted: “First of all, the new goalkeeper. But after completing the signing of Edouard Mendy, Declan Rice will be the last target for Chelsea.

“He is still in the list of Lampard to close a fantastic transfer window.”

Interestingly, it’s noted that Chelsea have already had a bid for Rice rejected, so are therefore planning to return with an improved offer.
