Mendy deal reached

Chelsea have reached an agreement with Rennes for goalkeeper Edouard Mendy with the 28-year-old set to sign a long-term deal in the next few days.

The Senegal international, who had already agreed personal terms after asking to leave the Ligue 1 side upon learning of Chelsea’s interest, will become Frank Lampard’s eighth signing of the summer.

Chelsea had an initial bid of about £18million rejected with Rennes asking for closer to £30million.

But a compromise has been found and Mendy will travel to London over the weekend for a medical.

Kante going nowhere

Chelsea have been tipped to cash in on midfield star N’Golo Kante.

But according to the Daily Mail, the Blues have rejected any and all offers for Kante, unwilling to sell the Frenchman this summer.

The report claims they are, however, keen to offload Jorginho, who has also been linked with an exit.

Chelsea continue to be linked with West Ham midfielder Declan Rice, whose arrival would see Jorginho fall further down the pecking order.

Barkley to be offered for Rice

While we are on the topic of Rice, Chelsea have been tipped to make a player-plus-cash deal for the Hammers star.

According to Football Insider, the Blues are considering offering Ross Barkley as well as a large sum of cash.
