Liverpool are in search of a top quality star who will replace James Milner and Alberto Moreno to become the first choice left back at Anfield.
The former Manchester City midfielder has done brilliantly in an unusual role but Klopp needs to sign a specialist for the LB role to finally solve the conundrum this summer.
The Reds have been heavily linked with a move to sign French international and Atletico Madrid star Theo Hernandez, who is currently playing on loan for Deportivo Alaves.
Now, a new name is in the lime light in the form of French international and Monaco star Benjamin Mendy. According to Mirror, the likes of Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City are looking to sign the left back.
Earlier in the day, we covered a report (via The Sun) claiming that Mourinho wants him at Manchester United as well.
The 24-year-old star has has been brilliant for Monaco, who currently sit at the top of the Ligue 1 table. Mendy’s top performances earned him his debut game for the senior national side last month.
Benjamin played full 90 minutes and provided an assist in the 3-1 victory against Luxembourg. He was an unused substitute against Spain. For the club, he has featured in 33 games in the current campaign and directly contributed in no fewer than 11 goals (1 goal and 10 assists).
As per the provided Mirror link, he joined Monaco for 13 million pounds and after impressive displays, he would now cost over 26 million pounds ($32.4million). In your opinion, should Klopp sign Hernandez or Mendy?
