THE BIGGER PICTURE: Arsenal currently have Oleksandr Zinchenko and Kieran Tierney in the left-back position but the latter could move away from the club due to reduced game time. The Gunners could consider selling the Scottish defender next season to fund their move for Mendy, who is likely to cost around £17.5million.
AND WHAT'S MORE: Mendy managed to record just 1868 minutes on the pitch this season due to poor form and injury issues.

WHAT NEXT FOR MENDY? Other than Arsenal, Mendy will also be offered to Tottenham Hotspur but as the Frenchman wants to play in the Champions League, he could eventually head to the Emirates Stadium.
