Senegalese international currently playing his club football in France for Rennes is set to join Frank Lampard’s Chelsea. He is the latest name added in a season of mad transfers by Roman Abramanovich’s club. The Russian billionaire has agreed to sign the new goalkeeper for an estimated 18 million Pounds. The transfer fee was upgraded after Rennes reportedly refused 4 million Pounds less during earlier negotiations.
Wendy will be joining Thiago Silva, Ben Chilwell, and Hakim Zeyich among 6 others to make Stamford Bridge their home till next season. He caps the most significant signing for Lampard since it is rumored that the Chelsea manager had run out of patience with his first choice goalie Kepa Arrizabalaga’s inconsistent form under the bar.
