Edouard Mendy may be Chelsea’s most important transfer but he may not solve everything

The Senegal international is in line to make his debut away to West Bromwich Albion on Saturday evening depending on coronavirus testing protocols, ending Kepa Arrizabalaga’s dismal reign as No1.

There is, of course, a chance that Mendy could be a dud – just look at the man he is replacing – but the hope is that the issue that has plagued the team since Frank Lampard became head coach will be much improved.

Football insider ExWHUemployee, who was the first to break the news of Mendy’s move to Chelsea, claims that the Blues have received a loan offer for Kepa.

He tweeted: “Chelsea news: A club from Italy has submitted a loan move for Kepa. Although it is not confirmed the club is thought to be Roma.”

It would make little sense for Lampard to keep three goalkeepers this season and the offer could be a chance for Chelsea to raise more cash.

The Blues will need to offload some players if they’re to continue spending before the October 5 deadline.
