Barcelona watching Lyon defender Ferland Mendy

Barcelona are watching Lyon defender Ferland Mendy this season.

France Football says the youngster has caught the eye of Barca directors, with scouts posted to keep tabs on the 22 year-old's progress this term.

Barca coach Ernesto Valverde has failed to be won over by Lucas Digne and Mendy is under consideration as a replacement. The left-back would arrive as cover for Jordi Alba.

Mendy is only in his first season at OL, but has impressed in his battle with Marcal to be coach Bruno Genesio's first-choice left-back.

He was snapped up last summer from Le Havre.
