Chelsea transfer news and rumours live: £25m Mendy deal agreed, Real Madrid striker rejects move

Hello and welcome to’s live Chelsea transfer blog for Monday, September 21.

The Blues have dominated this transfer window so far, spending well over £200million to overhaul Frank Lampard’s squad.

Chelsea have already brought in Timo Werner, Ben Chilwell, Kai Havertz, Hakim Ziyech, Malang Sarr and Thiago Silva.

And it looks as though Stade-Rennais goalkeeper Edouard Mendy will be next through the doors with a deal of around £25million reportedly agreed.

It comes amid intense criticism for Kepa Arrizabalaga, who endured another nightmare display in Sunday’s 2-0 defeat to Liverpool, giving up Sadio Mane’s second goal of the game.

We are expecting another busy day of Chelsea transfer news, with plenty of talk over potential exits as well as incoming, Emerson Palmieri and N’Golo Kante linked with departures, among others.
