Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy has now hired a new agent to help sort out his future.

He took to Twitter to state that there is a real possibility that the 31-year-old leaves the club this summer if a good proposal comes in.

It has been a tough season individually for Mendy, as he has struggled in whole to even make the starting 11 since Graham Potter came in to the club.

A string of sensational Kepa Arrizabalaga performances left the Senegal international out in the cold for near enough the entirety of the former Brighton man’s tenure.

However, even the return of Frank Lampard in charge has not turned around his fortunes, despite being a favourite of the Englishman when he was previously at the helm.

Perhaps obviously, this lack of playing time has seen rumours begin to spread that he may be considering his options going forwards, given he certainly still has a few more years at the top level.

Mendy hires new agent

Romano has claimed that he has now hired a new agent to potentially help with the transition of moving teams this summer.

He said: “Edouard Mendy could leave Chelsea at the end of the season in case of good proposal for both sides, still waiting on new coach final decision on GK situation.

“Mendy signed last week with Lian Sports agency; Fali Ramadani will be the new agent taking care of his future.”

It is widely expected that the new manager will be announced very soon at Stamford Bridge, with Mauricio Pochettino the only real remaining candidate.

It is so far unclear his thoughts on Mendy, however a new goalkeeper is frequently being mentioned on the list of targets to bring in to the club.
