Frank Lampard has confirmed that Edouard Mendy is undergoing a medical at Chelsea, with the Blues closing in on the £22 million capture of a new goalkeeper.
Lampard told reporters when asked for an update on Mendy: “He is having a medical as we speak. Subject to that being okay, then he will be a Chelsea player.”
When quizzed on Kepa he said : “I don’t know what benefits there are in the long run, football is in your hands.
“Competition is a regular thing. We have brought Mendy in for that competition. It’s in everyone’s hands to get into the squad.
“I think it is the hardest position, because of the individual nature of it. I have to be sympathetic to that point.
“Last year I changed a few times, it’s a different thought process. We are always striving for the best performance.”
Mendy could be thrown straight into action by Chelsea.
