Arsenal and Liverpool in for left-back

The summer transfer window might just be starting for Premier League champions Liverpool as they are reported to have agreed on a deal for Thiago Alcantara.

Now it is reported that they are in the race against FA Cup and Community Shield winners, Arsenal for the signature of Sporting Clube de Portugal full-back Nuno Mendes.

Nuno Mendes gave an impressive performance for his team after the lockdown under manager Ruben Amorim to be attracting interest from all corners across Europe.

Two Serie A outfits, Juventus and AC Milan are also reported to be attracted to Nuno Mendes and are preparing an offer to land him before the window ends.

However, the battle is between Arsenal and Liverpool but that will highly depend on the need for the clubs as Arsenal will not make a left-back signing a priority with the presence of Tierney and Ainsley-Maitland Niles for the position.

The concern for Arsenal in the transfer window is to secure Thomas Partey from Atletico Madrid and Houssem Aouar from Lyon before it ends on October 5.

At the moment, the North London outfit look stable at the back with the coming of Gabriel Magalhaes and William Saliba in the team.
