Report: Juventus now want to sign £22m Chelsea player, after claims Potter could get rid of him

Juventus may reportedly be interested in signing Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy.

Mendy, 30, is a highly-rated keeper that has enjoyed big success during his couple of years at Stamford Bridge, which included winning the Champions League prize.

However, he’s come under pressure lately at club level and even lost his starting position to Blues teammate Kepa Arrizabalaga.

He’s currently back playing this winter and lining up in-between the sticks for his country Senegal, who have qualified for the last-16 at the World Cup. Will he be back on the bench again when he returns to Chelsea, though?

Juventus interested in Edouard Mendy

According to TuttoJuve, Serie A giants Juventus are looking into recruiting a new goalkeeper next season.

The report names Mendy as a potential target for the Italians.

Mendy, who cost Chelsea £22million, is now linked with a potential glamorous move to Juventus.

The Senegalese shot-stopper was recognised as one of the world’s elite keepers not too long ago, so you can understand why top teams may be eyeing him.

Exit linked

90min claimed last month that Chelsea have offered Mendy’s services to rivals Tottenham as they look to potentially get rid of him.

In addition, The Sun reports that Blues manager Graham Potter may want an upgrade in the goalkeeper position next season.
