Chelsea will announce Edouard Mendy as their seventh summer signing in the very near future as he has already passed his medical at the club, according to reports. The Blues have made a huge statement of intent this summer with over £200million spent on overhauling their squad.
Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Ben Chilwell, Kai Havertz, Thiago Silva and Malang Sarr have all joined, although the latter will be sent out on loan for this season.
But their spending clearly isn’t finished as Lampard made it clear to club officials that he wanted to bring in a new first-choice goalkeeper, with his wish set to be granted.
Kepa Arrizabalaga struggled to convince the Chelsea boss that he could be his No 1 option moving forward.
The Spaniard was dropped for the final game of last season as well as the FA Cup final against Arsenal.
