Club manager Julien Stéphan has opened up and confirmed that Édouard Mendy transfer to Chelsea will be happening.
There has been so much speculation and rumours over the past few months about the next arrival at Chelsea as Frank Lampard looks to wrap up a very productive transfer window.
And Big man Mendy is the next player to make their move to the Bridge after earlier reports suggested that a £22 million fee had been agreed between the two clubs after weeks of talks and negotiations.
But the move has now in fact been confirmed by Mendy’s soon-to-be former head coach, Julien Stéphan, who confirmed that the 28-year-old goalkeeper is on his way to Chelsea and that they are now looing for an immediate replacement.
He was quoted on FootMercato: “We’re looking for a guard, it’s no secret. Edouard will certainly leave us to join Chelsea. In this position, we need to get someone back very quickly, I cannot give you names since there is nothing definitive.”
There has been suggestions that he has agreed a four year contract with the Chelsea side and is eager to try and make sure that he is the number one at the club, although he knows that he may have to wait to get an opportunity.
Look, this is great business by Chelsea and the fans will be delighted to see that Lampard is solving another problem at the club.
He will be a welcome addition to the Chelsea side and surely be the last big summer signing that the club make?
