Chelsea have signed Paris FC goalkeeper Sami Tlemcani
Chelsea have completed the signing of young prospect Sami Tlemcani, it was announced on Tuesday.
The Blues have signed the 16-year-old from French second-tier club Paris FC, who currently sit top of the Ligue 2 table.
Paris FC have confirmed on their official website that the goalkeeper has completed a permanent transfer to Stamford Bridge after spending a little over two years with them.
The teenage shot-stopper is a fairly unknown talent still in the beginning stages of his development, but he’s been involved around the senior squad at Paris FC and will now hope to make an impression in West London following his switch to England.
There has been no official word come from Chelsea yet on the signing, but it looks like he would join up with the club’s brilliant academy teams.
Chelsea managed to sign Rennes goalkeeper Edouard Mendy as competition for the senior group during the summer transfer window and he’s been given the chance by manager Frank Lampard to try cement the number one position ahead of struggling teammate Kepa Arrizabalaga.
There has been a real issue in recent seasons trying to find a consistent goalkeeper in net and any successful side needs to have that stability in the backline.
