Barcelona track Lyon’s Mendy

Barcelona have been tracking Olympique Lyonnais full-back Ferland Mendy with a view to replacing Lucas Digne, say reports in Spain.

The 22-year-old has excelled for Lyon this season, making 23 appearances since moving from second tier side Le Havre in the summer.

Diario Sport cites a report in France Football that the Catalan giants have been tracking the left-back and they are pondering a transfer move this summer.

The defender is said to have been ‘extensively tracked’ by the Blaugrana, who are keen to add competition for first-choice full-back Jordi Alba.

Sport believes Lucas Digne does not have a long-term future at the Camp Nou and could be sold to facilitate any future deal.
