Ferland Mendy Open To Transfer Move This Summer

May 16, 2019 10:49 AM

Ferland Mendy's agent revealed that the left-back is open to a transfer move away from Lyon.

"Mendy has been the protagonist of Lyon's great season, he is only 23 years old, he made his debut with France and now he is at the centre of the transfer window. Half the teams in Europe want him, quality defenders are an increasingly rare product. Think of Lucas Hernandez, who has moved to Bayern Munich for 80 million euros, Mendy is even more complete: he is effective in dribbling and crossing. He is the French Marcelo when he attacks, but in defense he can be compared to Alex Sandro or Chivu of years gone by. He is left-footed, but he also has a good right foot whch allows him to cut inside," said Ynan Le Mee.'

The 23-year-old is valued as highly as $56 million in the transfer market.
