Rennes deal Almost done
Rennes goalkeeper Edouard Mendy looks set to be next through the door after a deal was agreed, while there could also be some further outgoings following Michy Batshuayi’s loan move to Crystal Palace.
Chelsea are on the verge of completing a £18.5million deal for Rennes goalkeeper Edouard Mendy.
Traore Benefiting deal
According to reports in France, Aston Villa have made on £19m offer for Lyon winger Bertrand Traore as Dean Smith bids to bolster his attacking options following the signing of Ollie Watkins.
This particular transfer would be fantastic news for the Blues as the Daily Mail have previously revealed they inserted a buy-back option in the deal which saw Traore join Lyon permanently in June 2017.
The report also states the Blues are due to receive 15 percent of any profit the French club makes on the fee should they sell him.
Rice Deal update
Chelsea want to sign Declan Rice from West Ham United and are willing to axe four first-team players in order to fund a deal for the England international.
They claim Jorginho, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Andreas Christensen and Danny Drinkwater could all make way as Chelsea look to raise enough cash to meet the Hammers’ reported £80m price-tag for Rice.
