Juventus chase left-back Mendy

Juventus are closing in on French teenager Benjamin Mendy, according to the Gazzetta dello Sport.

The left-back, still just 18, has caught the attention of the Old Lady while playing in Ligue 2 with Le Havre.

The Bianconeri are reported to have already made a bid of €2m for a player who will be out of contract next summer.

However, given that the boy is also being chased by Arsenal and Sunderland, Juve are now ready to increase their bid to €3m in order to net the youth.

Mendy has represented his country at Under-16, U-17, U-18 and U-19 level.
