Nampalys Mendy could be allowed to leave Leicester City during the January transfer window, as reported by The Telegraph.
Brendan Rodgers is looking to trim down his squad, with the Frenchman being touted as somebody who could leave the King Power Stadium, having arrived there in 2016.
Mendy has been cast to the side at Leicester, playing just one solitary minute of football this season, as per WhoScored, which came when he replaced Youri Tielemans during the 2-1 win over Sheffield United.
A sign of how far down the pecking order he has fallen in a quick period of time, is that the 27-year-old started 23 league games last season and came off the bench on 8 occasions.
The rise of Hamza Choudhury will likely have contributed to this, as the 22-year-old only made 7 starts and 2 substitute appearances last season, but has already played 4 games from the start and come off the bench for another 4 this time around.
Letting Mendy leave is likely the best move for the Frenchman’s career, as the chances of him getting any substantial game time at the King Power Stadium seem very slim.
This can also be a good move for Leicester, as any of the funds raised can be added to the Harry Maguire money and used to further strengthen the squad.
Will James Maddison be a Leicester player next season?
