The British press have frequently discussed Chelsea plans to bring in a new goalkeeper this summer, as Kepa Arrizabalaga has failed to convince Frank Lampard.
Earlier this month, Le10 Sport explained the Blues and Tottenham Hotspur are chasing Lille’s Mike Maignan.
It was also explained neither of the two London clubs have tabled an offer, and the Ligue 1 side ‘patiently wait’ for bids to come in for the keeper.
Spurs and Chelsea interest in the 25-year-old is once again mentioned by Le10 Sport’, and it’s further explained Chelsea are ‘ready draw an offer’ for Maignan.
It’s claimed José Mourinho appreciates the Frenchman’s profile, but his side cannot make an approach without moving out Hugo Lloris.
However, the situation at Stamford Bridge is different, as Chelsea have ‘planned the departure’ of Kepa.
According to Le10, Maignan will be the ‘top priority’ for Lampard’s side, once Kepa’s future is resolved. Both Lille and the goalkeeper are aware of it, but they will have to wait until there’s more clarity on the Spain international’s situation.
Maignan has kept 13 clean sheets and conceded 45 goals in 37 appearances in all competitions.
