​Liverpool face West Ham challenge in fight for Real Betis defender Mandi

Liverpool are facing competition in their bid to sign a central defender this summer.

The Reds want to secure Aissa Mandi from Real Betis to replace Dejan Lovren, who departed for Zenit St. Petersburg.

And the Mirror says Mandi is also a target for West Ham United, with reports in Turkey also indicating that Fenerbahce are in the race.

A Spor claims Fener reached out to Mandi about signing, while Betis still hope the player can be convinced to renew his contract.

Liverpool would have to work hard to convince the player, even if Betis accept their bid, as he may see better chances for first team football at other clubs.
