Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy is reportedly still determined to stay at the club beyond this season despite rumours of his possible summer exit.
A recent report from The Mirror claimed that Chelsea have already informed Mendy that they would listen to offers for him this summer.
This might have partly been down to the club’s reported plan to revamp their goalkeeping department, with two Premier League goalkeepers; Robert Sanchez and David Raya among those linked with the west London club.
The 31-year-old has not featured for Chelsea since fracturing a finger in training after the World Cup with Kepa Arrizabalaga being the de facto number one during the period.
Mendy, however, has recently returned to full training and he reportedly wants to make use of the international break to regain his match fitness.
LondonWorld adds that the Senegal international is ready to fight and reclaim the first-choice goalkeeper spot.
Whether he could achieve that and perhaps convince Chelsea to keep him remains to be seen. Unlike outfield players, managers rarely rotate their goalkeepers.
That said, he is said to have already indicated to both Graham Potter and his Chelsea teammates his desire to stay at the club.
His future at the club likely depends on whether Chelsea will bring in a new goalkeeper.
Bear in mind that, while both Mendy and Arrizabalaga have contracts that expire in 2025, the former, who is on lower wages and, therefore, likely to attract more interest.
AC Milan, Napoli, and French side Nice are reportedly among the clubs monitoring Mendy’s situation at Chelsea.
