Chelsea set to ramp up their interest in Rennes goalkeeper, Edouard Mendy, this weekend.
According to the UK Mirror, Mendy comes highly recommended by the Blues’ technical director, Peter Cech.
Cech himself played for Rennes before his move to Stamford Bridge in 2004.
Chelsea are desperately trying to find a new keeper, having already shown interest in Ajax’s Andre Onana, Burnley’s Nick Pope and Borussia Dortmund’s Roman Burki.
But they will turn their attentions to Mendy, as they look for a new No 1 ahead of the Premier League season.
