After a lengthy absence from the team for Senegal international Mendy, the latest player to leave Stamford Bridge for Saudi Arabia has been confirmed.

Mauricio Pochettino is set to hand Kepa Arrizabalaga the No1 shirt next season after the Spaniard ousted Mendy midway through the previous season due to a number of high-profile errors.

After the Spaniard ousted Mendy midway through the previous season due to a number of high-profile errors, Mauricio Pochettino is likely to give Kepa Arrizabalaga the No. 1 shirt next season.

Mendy joined Chelsea in 2020 to replace Kepa. In his first season, he helped the Blues win the Champions League and set a record for keeping clean sheets in a Champions League season.

Despite this, he has been permitted to relocate to the Al-Ahli ahead of their return to the Saudi Pro League, where they won the second-tier title last year after shockingly falling out of the top division.

Mendy, 31, follows kinsman Kalidou Koulibaly to the Gulf state after his £17m deal with Al-Hilal was announced toward the end of the week.
