Mongongu: Attracting interest
Monaco defender Cedric Mongongu is reportedly a target for a number of English clubs, according to his agent.
The 20-year-old DR Congo international has also been linked with a move to Serie A giants AC Milan, with Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool the Premier League sides reportedly keeping tabs on him.
Mongongu's agent Christophe Mongai does not think a deal will be done during the January transfer window, but expects him to move in the future.
"Milan has followed him for some time and has often sent its scouts to observe him, but that doesn't mean that there is a real deal," he told tuttomercatoweb.
"I don't know anything about interest from Juventus.
"In football you never know, but I think it is very difficult. AC Milan could be a problem with the competition from other clubs.
"The player is also wanted in England and the Premier League is a more important stage than the Italian championship."
Monaco are currently mid-table in Ligue 1 and they have conceded 16 goals in 14 games so far this season.
