Premier League sides including Liverpool and Arsenal have contacted Ferland Mendy Transfers

Liverpool may start to replace their left-back line-up.Scottish defender Andy Robertson is now 30 years old, Greek defender Kostas Tsimikas has been out of condition since his injury lay-off, and the games he has played have all ended in disappointing performances.

There are young prospects on loan, such as Owen Beck and Luke Chambers, but they lack the experience to start in the first team right now. Liverpool have therefore turned their attention to the French side-back, who will be in fierce competition at Real Madrid next season.

According to L’Équipe, Liverpool and Arsenal have contacted the player’s agent ahead of this summer’s move. However, no formal offer has yet been presented and the Reds are expected to make any further moves as they have not yet decided on a new manager.

The 28-year-old left-back, who has attracted the interest of a number of English clubs including Manchester City, Manchester United and Newcastle United, is now in danger of a starting place with Bayern defender Alfonso Davies’ arrival at Real Madrid He will be forced to leave the club.

The French defender, who moved from Lyon to the Spanish capital in 2019, has made over 150 appearances. He has started a number of games this season and has plenty of European experience, with over ’40’ Champions League appearances.

However, realistically, Liverpool are unlikely to make a move for him: at 28, he is unlikely to be a long-term successor, and with him not being a point of reinforcement this summer, it seems unlikely that they will turn their budget towards a left-back. It is more likely that Beck or Chambers will be given a chance.

So is there a future for the French defender in England…?
