Lampard also eyeing Edouard Mendy. 28-year-old to go through clinical after Chelsea concur expense, Lampard additionally peering toward £74m star.
Edouard Mendy is making a trip to London to go through his clinical after Rennes acknowledged Chelsea’s most recent proposal for the goalkeeper as Frank Lampard additionally plots a move for West Ham star Declan Rice, as indicated by Fabrizio Romano.
Chelsea have been in the market for another guardian all mid year because of questions over Kepa Arrizabalaga after their club-record marking was chopped out by Lampard during the second 50% of last season following a line of horrible showings.
Mendy has risen as a practical objective lately subsequent to intriguing with Rennes last season and Comsmedia reported as of late that Chelsea were surrounding a £18m bargain in the wake of presenting an improved proposal for the Senegal worldwide.
It shows up the arrangement is presently done as Romano claims Rennes have acknowledged Chelsea’s offer and Mendy is currently on the way to London to go through his clinical and complete his transition to Stamford Bridge.
The Guardian columnist says individual terms have just been concurred with the goalkeeper so he’s set to turn into Chelsea’s most recent large cash marking and it shows up Lampard is as yet looking at one all the more fresh introduction before the window closes.
Romano claims the Blues manager is as yet enthused about marking Declan Rice and is weighing-up a conventional plunge for the cautious midfielder yet Chelsea are declining to meet West Ham’s £74m [€80m] valuation.
So it would seem that Mendy is set to join Chelsea over the coming days and the 28-year-old is required to be quickly introduced as Lampard’s main with Arrizabalaga confronting a dubious future in West London.
Consideration will at that point go to Rice and I expect we’ll see Chelsea make a genuine push to sign the West Ham star during the end a long time of the exchange window however an arrangement won’t be simple.
The Hammers are resolved not to let the 21-year-old leave at little to no cost except for as we’ve just observed a few times this late spring, Chelsea are insightful moderators in the exchange market so I wouldn’t be astounded to see Rice in the end up at Stamford Bridge.
