Chelsea Make €30million Offer For Lille Goalkeeper Mike Maignan

Lille goalkeeper Mike Maignan will be coming to Chelsea. The 25-year-old, who began his career with Paris Saint-Germain, is said to be available for €30million (£27m), which would be considerably less than other targets.

Mike Maignan is seen as a credible candidate to challenge Kepa Arrizabalaga at Stamford Bridge.

Maignan was an ever-present for Ligue 1 club Lille last season and would cost around €30m (£27m).

He has played for France at every international level from U16 to U21 and has also been called into the senior squad.

Chelsea signed Spain international Kepa from Athletic Bilbao in the summer of 2018, parting with a world-record fee for a goalkeeper.

But Kepa’s performances have come in for criticism and he was dropped in favour of the veteran Willy Caballero at times last season.
