Chelsea are set to wrap up the signing of Rennes star Edouard Mendy, who will move to Stamford Bridge to challenge Kepa Arrizabalaga for the No 1 jersey. The 28-year-old has been in sparkling form over the past calendar year. So Express Sport will now analyse his performances and how he stands up to Kepa. Chelsea are 'overpaying to bring players in' with one last deal eyed Chelsea signed Kepa from Athletic Bilbao back in the summer transfer window of 2018, convinced the Spain international would be the perfect replacement for Thibaut Courtois. However, the Spain international has struggled for form throughout his time in west London so far.
