Tottenham wants to sign Mendy as Lloris’s replacement. Mendy has a contract with Chelsea until 2025, but it is believed that the club would be willing to sell him for around £26 million this summer. Tottenham are reportedly interested in making a surprise move for Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy as the north London club looks for a replacement for Hugo Lloris.
There have been recent rumors that Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy could be on the move this summer. The Senegalese international has been a key player for the Blues since his arrival in 2020, but he has struggled for form this season.
There are a number of clubs reportedly interested in Mendy, including AC Milan, Inter Milan, and Monaco. It is believed that Chelsea would be willing to sell the goalkeeper for around £26 million.
Mendy’s future at Chelsea is uncertain, but it is clear that he is a talented goalkeeper who could be a valuable asset to any club. It will be interesting to see where he ends up this summer.
Here are some additional details about the rumors:
In March 2023, it was reported that Inter Milan were interested in signing Mendy. The Italian club is looking for a new goalkeeper after Samir Handanovic’s contract expires at the end of the season.
In December 2022, it was reported that AC Milan were also interested in signing Mendy. The Rossoneri are looking for a long-term replacement for Gianluigi Donnarumma, who left the club for Paris Saint-Germain last summer.
In September 2020, Mendy joined Chelsea from Rennes for a fee of £22 million. He quickly established himself as the club’s first-choice goalkeeper, helping them win the Champions League in 2021.
Lloris, who has spent 11 seasons at the club, is rumored to be heading for the exit door after his struggling form and expiring contract.
That will make finding a new No 1 a priority in the summer and The Sun claim they have their eyes on a stopper that plies his trade nearby.
Chelsea is gearing up for a summer clearout as they seek to balance the books after reporting a huge loss of £ 121.3 million for the year ending June 2022.
Mail Sport has previously reported that Mendy is high on the list of players they are looking to move on with the keeper having fallen behind Kepa Arrizabalaga in the pecking order.
Mendy’s current deal expires in 2025 and talks over a new one failed earlier this year.
Spurs are said to have been monitoring the situation and could now swoop in to bring the Senegalese across London.
With the £500m transfer spree during Todd Boehly’s first year in charge of the club due to be accounted for in next year’s financial results, as many as 10 members of the current squad could be sold at the club looks to balance the books.
Mendy was a key figure in the Champions League triumph under Thomas Tuchel but has suffered from injuries and now finds himself out in the cold.
