Liverpool renew interest in Monaco left back
Liverpool has renewed their long-term interest in Monaco left-back Benjamin Mendy and will reportedly make a concrete offer for the defender this summer. The full back starred in Monaco's league winning campaign in 2016/17 and is seen as a long-term replacement for interim left-sided defender James Milner.
With Liverpool set to sell defender Andre Wisdom to Derby County, the Anfield side is to reuse those funds to bring in further defensive mettle and are ready to make a bid for Monaco defender Benjamin Mendy worth approximately 20 million euros. There are multiple clubs interested in the French full-back and German side Bayern Munich is expected to be one of the clubs who is monitoring Mendy's situation very closely.
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has been given a £125 million transfer kitty to spend on new players and the German boss has indicated that the signing of a new defender is amongst his top priorities.
Mendy could yet decide that his future is with Monaco, with the French club considering a new contract for the player over a six-year period.
