Liverpool blow as Monaco close in on £7m France defender – report
Liverpool target Benjamin Mendy is set to join Monaco this summer, according to reports
Liverpool are set to suffer another disappointment in their bid to sign a left-back this summer as Benjamin Mendy closes in on a move to Monaco, according to the Daily Express.
Jurgen Klopp is thought to be keen to bolster his defensive options this summer in light of their 3-1 defeat by Sevilla in the Europa League final in Basel in May.
Spain left-back Alberto Moreno was heavily criticised for an erratic performance against his former employers Sevilla following a poor domestic campaign.
Liverpool were thought to be keen on Lorient full-back Raphael Guerreiro but the Portuguese star moved to Borussia Dortmund earlier this week.
According to a report in the Daily Express, the Reds are set to miss out on another Ligue 1 target as Mendy closes in on a transfer from Marseille to Monaco.
Liverpool finished in eighth place in the Premier League table last season under Klopp.
