4 Things To Know About Nuno Mendes: The Portuguese Starlet Being Targeted By Arsenal, Liverpool And United

Arsenal have made an enquiry for Sporting Lisbon left-back Nuno Mendes, according to O Jogo. The Portuguese publication claims that Gunners head coach Mikel Arteta is keen on adding the 18-year-old to his squad to provide competition for Kieran Tierney.
