Paris FC who are campaigning in the second division in France have confirmed that their goalkeeper Sami Tlemcani has completed a move to Premier League side Chelsea.

Although the Blues have already signed Edouard Mendy from Rennes, but Sami Tlemcani is expected to start his career at Chelsea with the Under 18 team.

Poor performances from Kepa Arrizabalaga at Stamford Bridge made Chelsea chiefs to sign Mendy, and the Senegalese goalkeeper has been impressive since he joined the Blues.

His first Premier League game was a clean-sheet as Chelsea defeated Crystal Palace 4-0 at Stamford Bridge.

Paris FC explained in a statement below according to report Daily Star UK

“After a little more than 2 years with Paris FC, the young goalkeeper (16) therefore joined the London club and will continue his progression across the Channel.”

Report also added that Paris FC offered Sami a professional contract which he turned down in favor of a move to Premier League side Chelsea.

Chelsea have spent more than two hundred million pounds this summer on the transfer of players as owner Roman Abramovich want his side to go for titles.

Chelsea will be facing Southampton in their next Premier League encounter.

Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Kepa Arrizabalaga insisted that he will continue to fight for his place in Frank Lampard's squad following the arrival of Edouard Mendy.

The Spanish goalkeeper has been dropped to the bench after making series of errors in the games against Brighton and Liverpool this season.

Mendy was then signed from Ligue 1 side Rennes for £22million to solve part of the Blues' defensive problems at the back.

And it has yielded much profit following the 4-0 thrashing of high flying Crystal Palace in a Premier League clash at Stamford Bridge.

Kepa who is currently on duty for Spain ahead of their international friendly with Portugal said that he is still committed to Chelsea despite the challenges.
