Chelsea have today announced the signing of Edouard Mendy from Rennes for a fee of £22 million.

The 28-year-old Goalkeeper joins the blues on a five-year deal and will compete with the likes of Underfire Kepa Arrizabalaga and Willy Caballero for a place in the starting lineup.

On signing for Chelsea, Edouard Mendy said:

“I am so excited to be joining Chelsea. It’s a dream for me to be a part of this exciting squad and to work with Frank Lampard and all of his coaching staff,”

“I look forward to meeting my team-mates and can’t wait to get started.”

Chelsea Sporting Director also spoke about the new signing and praised Performance Adviser Petr Cech for his part in the conclusion of the deal

“As soon as Petr Cech and our technical team identified Edouard as the most suitable goalkeeper to complement our existing group, there was only one player we wanted to bring in,” 

“Edouard arrives following a season of real success with Rennes, he is ambitious for more, and we welcome him to our club.”
