Pending new Chelsea signing set to finish medical today, announcement imminent

Whether you love transfer stories or hate them, just as with the Kai Havertz saga, the Edouard Mendy one is probably getting on your nerves a little bit by now.

But the end is near, very near!

Chelsea will soon announce the signing of new goalkeeper Edouard Mendy from Rennes, and it has become one of the most anticipated new signings of the window for Chelsea fans after yet another horror show from current number one Kepa Arrizabalaga at the weekend.

But as per reliable insider ExWHUemployee the source with proven links to Chelsea and the one who first reported Chelsea’s interest in Mendy, the 28-year old will finish his medical in Italy today.

One would assume that Mendy has been over in Italy as to avoid the 14 day quarantine in the UK when he arrives.

As I understand, Mendy had already completed parts of his Chelsea medical sometime recently, so there won’t be a lot more to tie up now.

Then it will just be about Chelsea and when they decide to announce the deal, hopefully imminently as is reported by Talk Sport this morning.
