The French left-back is one of Europe’s most talented left-backs and both clubs will be trying to seal his transfer in the summer.Conte side needs a backup for Marcos Alonso, the Spanish absence was more noticed in the game against Crystal Palace.Monaco will only do business with any club for their left back if the price is right as they are known to path away with their players majorly on that condition. Mendy’s contract with Monaco expires in 2021. The 22-year-old has one goal and 11 assists in 35 appearances with the Ligue1 table leaders so far, this season.AC Milan’s director of sport reportedly scouted the promising defender during Monaco’s home 3-1 win against Borussia Dortmund earlier this week.
