As we told you recently (see the brief of Sunday 19/03), Chelsea do not want to keep their goalkeeper Douard Mendy. To take over from the Senegalese porter, the London club could bet on a Frenchman.
According to information from Fabrizio Romano, the Blues have a weakness for the last bulwark of Leeds, Illan Meslier (23 years old, 27 games in the Premier League this season). “At the moment Leeds don’t want to open negotiations and Chelsea aren’t the only big club to have sent scouts to follow Meslier. It’s also possible that Mendy will leave Chelsea but it’s not decided at 100 yet. “. An arrival of Meslier also depends on this departure”, however tempered the Italian journalist.
Under contract until June 2026, the ex-keeper of Lorient is estimated between 20 and 25 million euros.
