Rennes look to Alphonse Areola in case of Édouard Mendy departure

As reported by Foot Mercato, Ligue 1 side Rennes are looking to French international goalkeeper Alphonse Areola as a potential replacement for goalkeeper Édouard Mendy, should the Senegalese international move to Chelsea, with the London club today submitting a second proposal to SRFC to sign the shot-stopper.

The 27-year-old spent the 2019/20 campaign on loan with Real Madrid from PSG, but has no intention of remaining with Les Parisiens as a second fiddle to Keylor Navas.

SRFC would be looking to do a deal with PSG in an initial loan agreement – the coming hours will likely be decisive in this matter.
