Liverpool are interested in the potential signing of Benjamin Mendy, according to L’Équipe, as per a report from Get French Football News.

AS Monaco are determined to keep their left-back, and they will not accept an offer less than €50 million.

Furthermore, their valuation of the player may rise to €60 million, with the high level of reported interest in him.

The Reds will have to fend off competition from Premier League top-dogs, Chelsea and Manchester City for the French international’s signature.

Mendy has made 25 appearances for Monaco since signing for them last summer. He has also made four appearances for France during his time at the club.

The 22-year-old has Champions League experience, and with the Anfield club entering the competition this season, they are keen to strengthen their squad.

Mendy has four-years remaining on his contract in France, and with his club looking to take a step further in Europe next season, it will take a great offer to lead him away.

Jurgen Klopp will be wanting to add serious talent to his squad in this transfer window, and it is now up to Liverpool to submit an exceptional offer for Mendy if they are truly interested in him.
