Chelsea offer Tottenham Hotspur chance to sign Senegal international Edouard Mendy

Tottenham Hotspur have been offered the chance to sign Senegal international Edouard Mendy by London rivals Chelsea, according to 90min (h/t Express). However, Antonio Conte’s team seem to have ‘no interest’ in him.

Spurs are looking to sign a successor to Hugo Lloris. The France international has been a great servant to the club. However, some fans have noticed the veteran’s powers wane over the last few seasons.

The club are expected to scour the market for a new number one in the upcoming transfer windows. And the 35-year-old is predicted to leave the North London side after the end of the current campaign.

Thus, it is essential for Tottenham to fill the gap between the sticks. Lloris is in his 11th season at Spurs. And while the shot-stopper did get his hands on a trophy during the 2018 World Cup, the former Olympique Lyonnais star has not had the same luck at N17.

Mendy signed for the Stamford Bridge side in the summer of 2020 from Stade Rennais. And the Senegalese immediately made a mark with the Blues in his debut campaign. The 30-year-old lifted the Champions League trophy under Thomas Tuchel.

And the Chelsea goalkeeper had been quality for them up until this season. While there were signs of vulnerabilities last term, the former Rennes star has had an evident dip in form in the 2022/23 campaign.

The Senegalese has lost his place in the Blues’ starting lineup and has been replaced by Kepa Arrizabalaga. The Spaniard, who had been out of favour for some time, has put in some impressive displays in the last few weeks to pip the 30-year-old in the pecking order.

Thus, while we do need a new shot-stopper, Mendy does not seem to be the answer. He seems to have lost his confidence and Spurs should rather hedge their bets on a younger goalkeeper with potential.

Illan Meslier is a name that comes to mind. We have been linked with the Leeds United shot-stopper in recent times and the 22-year-old would be a good addition to the team.

Make no mistake, Mendy is good, but Spurs should think about the present and the future when signing Lloris’ potential successor and make no compromises considering the size of the void that will need to be filled.
