Manchester City are keeping tabs on Arles Avignon forward Ismael Bennacer, according to L’Equipe.

The former Premier League champions have been watching the youngster on numerous occasions this season and are now seemingly ready to submit a summer bid.

The 17-year-old attacker has been in good form for the French side this season, breaking into the first team which has seen him make six Ligue 2 appearances.

Having also featured for the French national side at under-18 level, many potential suitors are now looking to make a move with Lazio, Lorient and Toulouse keen to join City with their interest.

Manchester United have also been known to scout the youngster this season.

Valued at just under £100,000 by transfer site Transfermarkt, Bennacer comes at a cheap price.
