Rennes captain Damien Da Silva appears to have confirmed that the French club's goalkeeper Edouard Mendy is closing in on a move to Chelsea.
The 28-year-old has been strongly linked with a switch to Stamford Bridge in recent days and various reports have claimed that a deal is close to being completed.
"We are a little selfish, we don't want to lose Edouard Mendy. But it's part of football and the transfer market. He's a great goalkeeper who deserves what happens to him," Da Silva told Telefoot.
Chelsea are thought to have agreed a fee in the region of £20m with Rennes, who have already played twice in Ligue 1 this term and are due to take on Nimes this weekend.
The Blues, meanwhile, will start their 2020-21 Premier League campaign away to Brighton & Hove Albion on September 14.
