TFA Scouted: Batista Mendy could be moving from Angers to Trabzonspor before the Turkish window shuts – scout report
According to reports, Batista Mendy could be moving from Angers to Trabzonspor before the Turkish window shuts – xGOLD first identified Mendy as a similar profile to Cheick Doucoure of Crystal Palace back in January and we scouted him again recently, our TIPPSTER model grading him as making an immediate big impact for a Tier 1 club. This will be a great move for Trabzonspor if it happens as we recommended him to a Serie A club this summer.
Who is Batista Mendy?
“Batista Mendy, at 23, is a very smart defensive midfielder who uses his technical abilities to contribute in the attacking phases. He is a confident ball-playing midfielder with good dribbling abilities, that allow him to connect play with teammates across the pitch. He is also strong defensively and is capable of effectively screening the backline. He has an imposing frame that helps him to dominate his physical duels. He often likes to step out and close down on opponents aggressively, but can still regulate his energy in a better way.”
