Chelsea are reportedly looking to secure a summer transfer deal for Inter Milan goalkeeper Andre Onana to potentially replace current shot-stopper Edouard Mendy.
This season has seen the 31-year-old make 11 appearances for Graham Potter’s side across all competitions, with a shoulder injury keeping him out of action for a large period of time.
In those appearances, the Senegal international has conceded 15 goals and kept just one clean sheet.
Despite having over two years left on his contract, it has been claimed that the shot-stopper’s time at the west London club could be up in the near future, with a potential replacement already being eyed up.
Should Chelsea get rid of Edouard Mendy this summer?
Across his 16 Serie A appearances, Onana has faced 52 shots on target, saving 39 of them, leaving him with the second-highest save percentage (76.9%) in the division.
This makes it easy to see why Boehly think he would be a suitable replacement for Mendy should he find himself leaving Stamford Bridge this summer.
Taking into account how Kepa Arrizabalaga has been showing his worth in Mendy’s absence this season by racking up the highest save percentage in the Premier League (77.8%) and an overall performance rating of 6.96/10 from WhoScored, putting him as Chelsea’s fifth-highest rated player, it seems that if the club were to bring Onana in, he’d have a challenge on his hands to become their first-choice goalkeeper.
