Transfer Talk: Mendy considering move amid Chelsea struggles
Edouard Mendy is considering his future at Chelsea as the Blues continue to struggle in the Premier League this season.
Mendy, 30, was an established starter under former boss Thomas Tuchel, but the arrival of Graham Potter last September has seen more rotation between the Senegal stopper and Kepa Arrizabalaga.
And according to The Daily Mail, Mendy is unhappy at the prospect of sharing the No1 role and wants to be a star player for his club.
The 25-cap international is due to represent his country at the World Cup and could reportedly leave London as early as January.
Mendy has already missed as many Premier League games as he did in the entirety of last season and Potter is seemingly keen on having someone who can play out from the back under pressure.
The report also speculates that the English coach is lining up a move for Brighton keeper Robert Sanchez, which could force Mendy to leave Stamford Bridge well before his contract expires in 2025.
