Chelsea considering move for Monaco’s Mendy

Chelsea are considering a summer move for Monaco left-back Benjamin Mendy.

Boss Antonio Conte wants to strengthen the Blues squad ahead of a return to Champions League football and signing a left-sided player is one of the club’s priorities.

Mendy, 22, has impressed in both Ligue 1 and the Champions League this season and has attracted interest from a number of Premier League clubs.

The France international joined Monaco in a £13m deal from Marseille last summer and is likely to cost at least double that if he moves during the summer transfer window.
