Mendy set for bumper deal

Chelsea are ready to reward goalkeeper Edouard Mendy with a new contract, according to The Daily Mail.

The Senegal international joined the Blues from Rennes two years ago, and he has since been their first-choice keeper.

He has produced several stand-out displays for them, and the hierarchy are now prepared to reward him for his efforts.

Mendy currently earns around £52,000-a-week, and his wages could be doubled with a new deal beyond June 2025.

Meanwhile, negotiations are still ongoing between Chelsea and Napoli over a season-long loan deal for Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Arrizabalaga is eager to play regular first-team football next term, and the Serie A outfit are ready to assure him minutes.

Napoli are currently prepared to pay 25 per cent of his £150,000-a-week salary, but are willing to buy him if he impresses.

Whatever happens, Chelsea are expected to cut their losses on Arrizabalaga at some point. He cost them a hefty £72m from Athletic.

The Blues already have a replacement in place in Gabriel Slonina, who will join the first-team squad at the turn of the year.
