Chelsea allegedly hold discussions with Rennes goalkeeper Edouard Mendy as they continue their search for a replacement for Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Chelsea are allegedly contemplating a bid for Rennes goalkeeper Edouard Mendy.

With Kepa Arrizabalaga having failed to impress at Stamford Bridge, the Blues are looking for a replacement for the Spaniard, either on a short or long-term basis.

While Burnley's Nick Pope and Atletico Madrid's Jan Oblak have been linked with a switch to West London, it appears that Frank Lampard is considering other options.

According to highly-regarded Twitter account @ExWHUemployee, discussions have recently been held with Rennes stopper Mendy.

In his first season at the French outfit, the Senegalese made 28 appearances in all competitions, helping his new club qualify for the Champions League through their Ligue 1 position.

Although the 28-year-old has a contract until 2023, the financial implications of the coronavirus pandemic may lead to Rennes cashing in on Mendy for the right price.
