Chelsea target Mendy is a ‘great goalkeeper’ & ‘deserves’ summer move, says Rennes team-mate Da Silva

The French defender does not want to see prized asset leave the club, but concedes that he is ready to step up to the next level

Chelsea target Edouard Mendy is a “great goalkeeper” and he “deserves” a summer move, says Rennes captain Damien Da Silva.

Goal has reported that Chelsea are looking to push through a €28m (£25/$33m) deal for Mendy by the end of the week, having seen an opening bid of €20 million (£18m/$24m) rejected.

The 28-year-old shot-stopper helped Rennes finish third in Ligue 1 last season, and the Blues are eager to bring him in to compete with Kepa for the No.1 jersey at Stamford Bridge.
