It looks like goalkeeper Édouard Mendy is heading for the exit door at Stamford Bridge.
The Senegalese international is out of contract in 2025, and, although there have been talks of a new deal, he remains uninterested in an extension.
Although he was formerly the number one, he has not started a game since the World Cup, with Graham Potter preferring Kepa Arrizabalaga behind the sticks.
And suggestions remain that the club could seek to sign another keeper this summer, with persistent links to Brentford’s David Raya.
They also have Gabriel Slolina in their youth squad, their summer recruitment from the MLS, although he is still very much one for the future, and is not yet ready for first-team football.
Mendy was signed from French side Rennes in 2020 when Frank Lampard was still in charge of the club, and supplanted Kepa as the number one, until the Spaniard reclaimed his place.
Andy is an exiled English football fan living in Cyprus. He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
