Chelsea make €20m offer for Rennes goalkeeper Mendy

The Blues are looking to sign the 28-year-old to provide competition for the Spain international, who has failed to impress at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues made Kepa the most expensive goalkeeper ever in 2018, paying £72 million ($93m) to bring him to Stamford Bridge from Athletic. However, the 25-year-old has failed to live up to expectations in London.

Lampard dropped Kepa late in the 2019-20 season after a string of inconsistent performances, opting for veteran Willy Caballero instead. 

The Blues boss is now hoping to bring in another option between the posts, though Kepa could be heading for an exit with Sevilla and Valencia having registered interest in a loan.

But Kepa’s wages could prove problematic for the Liga sides, meaning Chelsea could have three goalkeepers in their first-team squad should Mendy arrive. 

Rennes are determined to hang on to the 28-year-old, however, after the Senegalese international helped his team to their first ever Champions League spot with a third-place finish in Ligue 1 last term.

Mendy only arrived at Rennes last summer following several solid campaigns with Stade de Reims, and has a contract through 2023.

Having started last week’s Ligue 1 opener against Lille, Mendy missed his side’s win over Montpellier on Saturday due to personal reasons.

Rennes have yet to respond to Chelsea’s bid, as Lampard continues to spend big in the hope of building a contender for the 2020-21 Premier League title. 0:010:30

Article continues below

The Blues have already brought in a host of new faces ahead of the start of the season including Ben Chilwell, Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech, Malang Sarr and Thiago Silva.

Their most expensive signing appears yet to come as well, as they continue to close in on a move for Bayer Leverkusen star Kai Havertz.

The 21-year-old would cost Chelsea £90m ($118m), with £72m ($95m) coming up front and a further £18m ($24m) in instalments.
