Liverpool can be a real force during 17/18 if they sign this 22-year-old defender

The Liverpool supporters here in the Transfer Tavern were mightily pleased to see their team return to the elite of Champions League football during the 2016/17 campaign…

There is, however, a real sense that the hard work starts now for the Reds who will need to ensure that their squad is strengthened in the coming months to ensure that they can be competitive in all competitions next season.

Had it not been for some pretty average defensive performances from Liverpool during the second half of the campaign then they might have actually finished a lot closer to eventual champions Chelsea.

A tilt at winning the Premier League must be next on the agenda for German boss Jurgen Klopp and his signings over the next couple of months will dictate whether or not that is a possibility for the 2017/18 season.

One man who should be a top target for the club this summer is Monaco left-back Benjamin Mendy who looks set to depart the French champions following some standout performances during last season.

The 22-year-old was a key component of the Monaco team which reached the semi-final of the Champions League where they defeated Manchester City along the way and interest is likely to be high this summer.

A couple of Liverpool fans have entered the Tavern to begin their Sunday session early and they are of the belief that Mendy would do a very reliable job on the left-hand side of the back four, stating that as good as James Milner has been in the position, it is vital that a more natural left-back is signed during the summer.

Liverpool fans, would you welcome Mendy to the club? Who else should the Reds be looking to sign? Let us know in the comments below!!!
