According to L’Equippe, Liverpool have been handed a huge boost in their pursuit of highly-rated left back Benjamin Mendy, after it became clear that his move to Manchester City had stalled.
The versatile young defender is valued at a hefty £40m pounds, and has no shortage of suitors following an impressive campaign with A.S Monaco.
It was reported that Manchester City were the front-runners for his signature, but their approach stalled and paved the way for Jurgen Klopp.
The young French international has no shortage of suitors however, and it is reported that Liverpool face intense competition from Chelsea for his signature.
Capped four times by France having only made his debut back in March, Mendy is a great prospect and a player to watch. An impressive season capped by a semi-final Champions League appearance means that Monaco will not let him go on the cheap.
