Celta Vigo interested in Batista Mendy (Angers)

L’Équipe report that LaLiga side Celta Vigo are considering a deadline day move for Ligue 2 side Angers’ defensive midfielder Batista Mendy.

The 23-year-old is under contract with Le SCO until June 2024 and has been the subject of intense interest from Turkish 1st division side Trabzonspor, who have had a multitude of proposals knocked back.

The player himself was not convinced about a move to Turkey, rejecting Trabzonspor formally on Wednesday.

Celta Vigo’s transfer business is being orchestrated by Luís Campos, who is also the Sporting Coordinator at Ligue 1 title holders Paris Saint-Germain.

Celta have poached from the French football market already once this summer, signing 27-year-old Franco-Ivorian winger Jonathan Bamba from Ligue 1 side Lille on a free transfer after his contract with LOSC expired.

Angers have struggled to convince Batista Mendy to remain at the club following their relegation to Ligue 2 last May.
