Djibril Sidibe played a major role in Monaco’s 2016/17 title win, but the French club are willing to listen to offers for their star player.

According to reports from The Daily Star, the versatile 24-year-old full-back is on the radar of Manchester City who have already signed his former team-mate Bernardo Silva.

City are also reportedly negotiating a deal for Monaco’s full-back Benjamin Mendy.

Sidibe was linked with a move to Arsenal before joining Monaco, and the Gunners could be interested in signing him this summer.

However, both Manchester City and Arsenal are likely to face a strong competition from Tottenham Hotspur for his signature.

Spurs’s first-choice right-back Kyle Walker has been reportedly linked with a move to Manchester City. In fact, the England right-back is one of Pep Guardiola’s prime summer targets.

In case, Spurs have to part ways with the defender, they will waste no time in swooping for their ‘top target’, Sidibe.

The Frenchman is primarily a right-back, but he can play as a left-back and a right-sided midfielder as well. He would be a great addition to the Spurs’ squad.
