Liverpool are widely reported to compete with Manchester City and Chelsea to gain the signature of talented French left back Benjamin Mendy. But who exactly is he?

Mendy has had a brilliant season for AS Monaco and helped them to the Ligue 1 title and a Champions League semi final.

However, he is unlikely to he cheap and several rumoured transfer fees are around the £40 million mark. Will Klopp be prepared to splash the cash on him? Will Liverpool be able to fight off fierce competition from rival clubs? We will have to wait and see how the next few weeks pan out!

Manchester City remain favourite’s for his signature though with reports he was already in Manchester to get the deal done. But that was quickly dismissed by… the player himself! He was suppose to be in Manchester at the time of this video he posted on his Twitter.
