Mendy has earned high praise since joining Rennes in 2018 after helping Stade de Reims win Ligue 2.
He has kept 23 clean sheets over the past two seasons with only Mike Maignan keeping a better record in that time.
Chelsea may struggle to find a buyer for Kepa in the summer transfer window, particularly if they’re hoping to recoup most of the £72m they paid to sign him in 2018.
But the Blues are expected to let a host of other players leave to help raise funds for other targets with a move for Declan Rice being touted.
