Arsenal are now favorites to land Monaco defender Benjamin Mendy, according to L’Equipe via 101 Great goals.
Mendy has been one of Monaco’s stand out players this season and produced a solid display when the French league leaders faced Manchester City in the Champions League round of 16 a fortnight ago.
His superb form this season has caught the attention of big clubs who are weighing up a summer bid to sign him.
Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United have all been linked with the defender but L’Equipe claims it is the Gunners who are front runners in the race for his signature.
The newspaper claims we are confident of completing a deal for the defender and he could be the first arrival at the Emirates this summer.
Obviously, Arsenal will do well with a new left back especially after Nacho Monreal and Kieran Gibbs failed to impress this season.
The left back position has been our weakest area this season and if we must improve our back line this summer, it is imperative we look into that area.
Mendy who is just 22 years old has the potential to become a worldclass defender in the future and will be a good recruit to improve our team.
We have no idea how much he would cost but considering he’s still contracted with the French giants until the 2020/2021 season, he isn’t expected to come cheap. Hopefully, Arsenal will be willing to pay what’s needed to bring him to the Emirates.
