Edouard Mendy's imminent move to Chelsea is reportedly being held up by Rennes who have made a last-minute demand to include Fikayo Tomori in the deal.

Mendy is set to become the seventh signing in an extraordinary summer of spending for Chelsea after Sportsmail.

As a result of the late negotiations, Mendy has returned to training with the French club as he looks to keep up his fitness levels ahead of his switch.

Rennes have also reportedly tried to get Olivier Giroud as part of the deal for Mendy but the move was rejected by the Blues.

Chelsea conceded 54 goals in 38 Premier League games last season and manager Frank Lampard wants Mendy to help eradicate such a poor record.

The Chelsea boss may already been vindicated in his decision to sign Mendy after Spaniard Kepa made another blunder in their 3-1 win at Brighton.

The previous record fee for a goalkeeper moving from France to England was the £12.3m Chelsea paid to Rennes in 2004 for Petr Cech, who is now Chelsea's technical director and played a key role in Mendy's selection.
