Mendy has emerged as a target for both Man City and Liverpool and he is expected to make a move to the Premier League this summer.

It is understood that Jurgen Klopp needs the Frenchman at Anfield to solve his dilemma at left-back once and for all.

However, Liverpool’s management are said to have now resigned themselves to the belief that the France international will opt to join Manchester City this summer.

A few days back, there were widespread speculations that Pep Guardiola’s side were closing in on a €45 million (£39.6m) deal for the player and have beat both Chelsea and Liverpool for him.

Liverpool could now focus on Algeria international Faouzi Ghoulam and are expected to get him from Napoli for a much cheaper fee than Mendy. Ghoulam has just one year remaining on his contract with the Italian club and is said to be available for around £17m.
