Chelsea confident prising Mendy away from Rennes

Chelsea are confident of signing Rennes goalkeeper Edouard Mendy.

The London Evening Standard says after clinching a deal for Bayer Leverkusen ace Kai Havertz, manager Frank Lampard is ready to focus on Mendy.

Chelsea boss lost faith in Kepa Arrizabalaga last term and his keen to bring in another option between the sticks. The Blues have had an opening bid of around £14m rejected but are expected to return with a second bid.

The 28-year-old will become Chelsea's eighth summer signing if Lampard can strike a deal.
