Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has confirmed Edouard Mendy will become Chelsea’s seventh signing of the summer transfer window shortly.
The Blues’ boss announced that the goalkeeper is undergoing his medical ahead of a £27million move from Rennes.
Chelsea have been targeting a move to sign Mendy for several weeks now and they managed to find a breakthrough in negotiations over the weekend.
He will become their seventh summer signing after deals for Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Malang Sarr, Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva and Kai Havertz.
An announcement is expected by the club at some point today with Lampard confirming the goalkeeper is undergoing a medical this afternoon.
“Mendy is having a medical as we speak,” he said.
“Subject to that being okay, then he will be a Chelsea player.”
