Arsenal fans got excited over Ferland Mendy’s performance against Manchester City on Tuesday, and they want their club to sign the left-back as an eventual replacement for Nacho Monreal.

Lyon’s Mendy played the full 90 minutes against Manchester City in their 2-2 draw in the Champions League on Tuesday. He was very effective in getting forward, completing all of his attempted dribbles and 94% of his passes, a couple of which resulted in some great chances for his team.

His performance certainly caught the eyes of Arsenal fans, who are growing concerned with the state of the left-back position at the club currently. Sead Kolasinac played well against Bournemouth at wing-back, but he was significantly less impressive at full-back in the previous game.

Meanwhile, Nacho Monreal’s deadline for a return keeps being pushed back, and the Spaniard is out of contract at the end of the season anyway.

As a result, the club are reportedly on the lookout for a new signing, and Arsenal fans are keen to send them in Mendy’s direction:
