Sports Mole rounds up all of the latest transfer news in the Premier League on Tuesday, September 22.

Edouard Mendy is reportedly undergoing a medical at Chelsea ahead of completing a switch from Ligue 1 side Rennes.

The Blues are believed to have already agreed terms with the goalkeeper and his club on a deal worth up to £22m.

Sky Sports News claims that Mendy arrived in London on Monday to put the finishing touches to the transfer, which is expected to be announced on Tuesday.

Senegal international Mendy is expected to go straight into Chelsea's starting lineup following another calamitous display from Kepa Arrizabalaga in Sunday's defeat to Liverpool.

Frank Lampard is said to have previously targeted Mike Maignan, but Lille's £32m valuation put Chelsea off making a move.

Mendy kept nine clean sheets in 24 Ligue 1 appearances in 2019-20 and has featured once for Rennes so far this season.

Tottenham Hotspur 'stunned by Dele Alli omission'

Tottenham Hotspur players were reportedly left stunned when Jose Mourinho opted to omit Dele Alli from his latest squad.

Although the England international did not feature in the group which travelled to Bulgaria for their recent Europa League qualifier against Lokomotiv Plovdiv, it was expected that the playmaker would return at the weekend.

However, the 24-year-old was again absent as Spurs squared off against Southampton on Sunday afternoon, a game which they won by a 5-2 scoreline.

According to the Daily Mail, many of Alli's teammates were surprised when learning that he had been sidelined for the second fixture in succession.

Mourinho has claimed that having too many options in central midfield was the reason for the player missing out on selection.

With Gareth Bale now another option at Mourinho's disposal, Alli is being linked with a transfer to Paris Saint-Germain.
